Watch this trailer...

     Waterfall is a wonderful and enthralling tale from the start to finish. Though aimed at a younger audience, it will captivate any reader’s imagination and tug at their heartstrings in the process. Romance, mystery, and adventure, Waterfall encompasses many genres, which makes it an enjoyable read for many book lovers. I highly recommend it!


Lisa T. Bergren is the author of over thirty books that have sold more than two million copies combined. She’s written fiction of all sorts (romance, historical, contemporary, suspense, YA), nonfiction and children’s books. She divides her time between writing, editing, traveling and co-parenting her three children (16, 13, and 8 ) with her husband, Tim. The Bergrens reside in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

  2. Emily! Now you just made me add a whole bunch more to my TBR stack of books! :) Great review. YES I've been to Italy, Tuscany included. In fact, I can relate to the castles as I went through some when I was there. Yummy. AND WHY ON EARTH would Gabi want to make it back to this time when she's been rescued by an ITALIAN knight in shining armour. I suppose I better take that up with Lisa Bergren ;)

  3. I loved this series although the level of violence left me squeamish. But Lisa is so talented that I was willing to continue. I listened on audio and the narrator was great, too. Lovely post and review!

    1. There's violence?!?? LOL Now I HAVE to read them. I'm sort of an action/suspense junkie. And that's a really great endorsement, Carrie, because if it left you squeamish and you STILL had to keep reading? Sign of a GREAT author! :) Thanx for commenting

  4. Sounds like an awesome read from a new to me author :)

    I've never been to Italy, but it's on the list!

    Time travel is so much fun to read about because there are just so many possibilities.

  6. Thanks so much for the review! I'm glad you gave my River of Time Series a chance. It's such a great time to discover it, because there are 5 in the series, and the 5th will be released this summer, so if you like it, you can just roll right along in the River... :-) Happy reading! And blessings on your studies and own writing, Emily.

  7. Waterfall is great; Cascade is better, and Torrent is simply superb so keep reading!! They are just the right mix of adventure and romance; love the time travel aspect with the modern girls in old time Italy, really makes it interesting. Can't wait for the 5th!

  9. I love the Rivee of Time series! I found out about it dueing the YA Fiction online scavenger hunt thing I think two years ago. I put it on my list, but didn't even think about it for a while. Them I found it at the library and decided to try it. I got two other friends hooked on the series as well. Since I lived in Germany at the time, becuase of Waterfell, we planned our end of the year trip for Girl Scouts to Italy. We went to both Firenze and Sienna, and were complete and total wierdos the entire time, saying "oh, Gabi and Lia did this here" or "this is where Gabi did this" and so on. It was a blast. :-)

  12. I LOVED this series!! I just finished reading Bourne/Torrent. AMAZING! I totally loved it! So much happens, and it was nice to have Lia's POV and also Luca's. I'm not sure which book was my favorite in the series as all of them were so incredibly good! I have not been to Italy.(Yet) I would love to go someday! Hopefully sooner rather than later!

  21. I looooove this series! It was amazing - full of action and suspense but also some romance too. I've never been to Italy, but I wish I had! It'd be so cool. Time travel is a really cool concept - if it were real, I'd probably be in medieval Italy in a heartbeat.

  22. Great comments everyone. Thanks for stopping by. Stay tuned until Feb 8th....

  23. Time travel is so fun to read and your review makes the book sound exciting - time travel in Italy! I also love YA literature - inside, I'm constantly time-traveling, from my five-year-old self, to eighteen, to every point in between. YA takes me back and is the greatest fun!

  24. The River of Time series was my first Lisa T Bergren experience and I was sunk within the first few pages! I enjoyed RoT so much and was so enthralled with Italy that I immediately started reading The Gifted series - also by Lisa and have been blown away by yet another Christian medieval Italy series. Now I am more than desperate to go to Italy and keep trying to invent my own personal time machine! I mean, seriously medieval knights really know how to make a girl swoon for real!! So should I ever meet my own knight in shining armour you can bet I'll be planning a trip to the most romantic country in the world!!

  25. I have not read any from Lisa T Bergren YET, but I've been watching this series for quite awhile now, and really want to read them. I tend to love reading YA...I love books I can share with my teenage daughter.

    I've never been to Italy, but would love to go!
