Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren

In Waterfall, American teenager Gabi Betarrini accidently finds herself in Fourteenth-Century Italy . . . Knights. Swords. Horses. Armor. And Italian hotties. Most American teens want an Italian vacation, but the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives there with their archaeologist parents. Stuck on yet another hot, dusty dig, they are bored out of their minds... until they place their hands atop handprints in an ancient tomb and find themselves catapulted into the Fourteenth Century and in the middle of a fierce battle between knights bent on killing one another.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Waterfall (River of Time, #1)

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a knight in shining armour? To live in a time where there was only a chamberpot and women were not meant to lead, but follow their father or husband's every wish and decree? Well, Lisa T. Bergren does a wonderful job in portraying what it would be like to go back in time as a modern woman into Medieval Italy. I loved Gabi, her whole personality was tremendously strong and amazingly complex. Who wouldn't want to have a knight, but would we really be willing to sit back and let him protect us? Historically, there are some differences, but Bergren does a wonderful job to make it all blend away to where you cannot see the difference between historical information and author's perogative.

If you are looking for a good read, where there is adventure, romance, and sword fights, this would be a definitely good book to read. Only downside is this is 1 of 3, so once she publishes the last book (come on November) this will be it for this very interesting trilogy.

Highly Recommend!
