“Of all the cursed luck, I finally meet the potential man of my dreams, and he’s almost 700 years old … literally.”

Book: Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergen, David C. Cook, 2011
Waterfall: A Novel (River of Time Series)
Genre: Fantasy/Historical/Modern Realistic
Target Audience: Girls 13-19
Subjects: Dating relationships, family relationships, faith
Summary: A mere touch of the hands. That’s all it took and the two girls found themselves whisked away to the past. Same place. But now they’re in the seventeenth century. And separates. In fact, Gabriella isn’t even sure that Lia made it. She assumes she did since they touched the wall at the same time, but she’s here and Lia isn’t. Someone else is though, Marcello, a very attractive someone, a someone who just so happens to be the son of the reigning lord of the area. As time goes on, Gabriella’s search to find her sister or a way back home draws her and Marcello closer and closer together. Never mind the fact that he’s betrothed to the daughter of a family his needs to be united with for political reasons.
Notes: This was an enjoyable book to read, but it did not contain a whole lot of spiritual content. Gabriella is searching a bit for faith. She states at one point that she knows the whole premise of Christianity but hasn’t really bought into it for herself. A couple of times she sort of cries out to God and Marcello and his family seem to have a slightly deeper faith. It’s just not the focus though. It’s there a few times in the background, but not a focus of the book, certainly not an emphasis on a particular message. 
Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 2.5/5
Reviewer: J:-)mi

Acts 17:26-27 – From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.
