What if you not only fell back through time... but fell in love, too? 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, months have passed, and all of Siena longs to celebrate the heroines who turned the tide in the battle against Florence—while their enemies will go to great lengths to see them dead. Even in the midst of the battles, Gabi’s heart is increasingly drawn to Marcello, just as Lia’s is to Luca. In medieval Italy, the sisters discover things inside themselves that they couldn’t seem to find in the present—connection with their mom, courage within, and the understanding that a life well lived often means encountering sacrifice. But in a world long past, many things still keep Gabi from giving Marcello her heart forever... and one thing in particular calls all three of the Betarrinis home.

Gr 9 Up-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. Pam Turlow's reading is exhilarating.-Audrey Sumser, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Mayfield, OHα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
