Cascade (River of Time #2)

by Lisa T Bergren

$12.99

Quick Overview

In this action-packed sequel (2011) to Waterfall (2011, both David C. Cook), Gabi and Lia Bettarini return to 14th-century Italy with their mother, only to discover that months have passed since their departure. In their absence, the stories of the She-Wolves and their heroism have grown, making them beloved amongst the Sienese and detested by the neighboring Florentines. As tensions mount and battles between the two cities continue to erupt, Gabi's relationship with the noble Marcello deepens, prompting her to consider whether to remain forever in Italy's past or to return to the 21st century. Lisa T. Bergren expertly weaves elements of historical fiction, romance, Christian fiction, and time travel into a cohesive story. Her knowledge of medieval Italian history, politics, and culture is detailed, from the political intrigue and treachery that marked the time period to the customs to which society adhered. In direct opposition to 14th-century expectations is Bergren's depiction of the Bettarini women, who are confident, resourceful, and courageous. Whether deftly wielding swords and daggers or using the bow and arrow with deadly accuracy, Gabi and Lia are formidable warriors who fight side-by-side with the men of Sienna. Although strong character development and non-stop action move the story line forward, it's the swoon-worthy romance, based on sacrifice and faith, between Gabi and Marcello that truly serves as the backbone of the book.
 

Details

"Mom touched my under-dress--a gown made six hundred years before--and her eyes widened as she rubbed the raw silk between thumb and forefinger. She turned and touched Lia's gown. "Where did you get these clothes?"" In "Cascade," the second book in the River of Time Series, Gabi knows she's left her heart in the fourteenth century and she persuades Lia to help her to return, even though they know doing so will risk their very lives. When they arrive, weeks have passed and all of Siena longs to celebrate the heroines who turned the tide in the battle against Florence--while the Florentines will go to great lengths to see them dead. But Marcello patiently awaits, and Gabi must decide if she's willing to leave her family behind for good in order to give her heart to him forever. Size 1.2" H x 8.2" L x 5.5"W, 416 pages
