I’d been given my dearest desire – my family, here with me, making it possible. How could I be giving in? Now? After all we’d been through? The way had been made! I only had to escape this trap…

Book: Torrent: A Novel (River of Time Series) by Lisa Tawn Bregren, David C. Cook Publishers, 2011
Genre: Fantasy/Historical/Modern Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 14-19
Subjects: War, Love, Family relationships, destiny/purpose
Summary: They’re back again. This time they’ve got their dad with them as well. So the whole family is complete now. But even with the last enemy killed, there’s still more out there who want to see Marcello and his family destroyed. They’ve captured his brother and are using it as a trap to get to Marcello. Then they get Gabi again – this time with plans to force her into marriage to Marcello’s friend Rodolfo – a friend who is on the other side but truly admires Gabi. Surrender would be so easy. All they ask is a marriage to a kind man who would love her, but who is not Marcello. Is there any way out of this latest trap or is it time to stop fighting?
Notes: This is the third in the Rivers of Time series about two sisters who manage to accidentally travel through time to the 14th century and play a large role in the events taking place in that time and place. As with the first two books, there is not a large amount of Christian references in it. There is no focus on the Bible. This book however has Gabi turning a little bit more to God. She feels God has given her a purpose in being in this time period – to belong to Marcello and be his wife. So when the enemy forces her to marry another at knife-point she has to keep seeking wisdom and answers from Him.

Genesis 2:24 – For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
