Stuck among the rubble of medieval castles in rural Tuscany on yet another hot, dusty archaeological site, Gabi and Lia are bored out of their minds... until Gabi places her hand atop a handprint in an ancient tomb and finds herself in 14th-century Italy. And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces. Suddenly Gabi’s summer in Italy is much, much more interesting.

If you're a fantasy fan looking for something a little different, this one is worth a try. Waterfall is the story of Gabriella, a 21st century teenager transported to 14th century Italy while on a visit to an old hystorical toomb with her family. Gabriella finds herself plunged into a war between two fighting dinisties. As she adjusts to her surroundings and searches for a way home, she is inexpliccably drawn to one of the knights. This was a lively, engaging story with a likeable heroine, colourful descriptions and plenty of action. The author paints a vivid portrait of life in medieval Italy. A good book to while away an afternoon.

A Great Escape!
Any additional comments?
Ok, so I only make comments when a particular book/series is just awesome. I love the way Lisa Bergren enthralled me into this historical fiction, incredible love story, totally funny series! Yes, it is cheesy at times but what 14th century knights are not a little cheesy when it comes to love...especially in Italy! If you love a love story, great action and a little funny, this book is for you! I am so happy that I picked this treasure up! I realized, with all the distopian novels I have been reading that sometimes are a really sad, OK, a lot sad, this book was just refreshing! I guess I can say that when I read a good book/series that I cannot put down and laugh along the way and feel happy love....it is a winner! Some other reviews say that Pam Turlow (the narrator) was not that great...l beg to differ. She puts in some great talent here. Her Italian is wonderful and brings the story to life! Her voice is a little deeper than most 17 year old, high pitched, annoying voices, so it was fine with me. All I can say is....THIS WAS AWESOME!

Love the story, but not the narrator
Would you listen to Waterfall again? Why?
Yes; because i like the story. I'm really into that type of literature, and i love the characters and how well Lisa draws you into the time period. However, one reason i would not listen to Waterfall again is because the narrator is not really that talented, in my opinion. I grew up with Jim Dale, and so maybe i'm a little picky, but i don't think she thought out the voices beforehand. She makes Lia sound like a ditzy airhead, and Gabi sound like a bratty teen. Her voice is really hard to listen to for long periods of time.
What did you like best about this story?
I love the characters and the way they come to life. The author has a way of making the characters relatable and intriguing.
Also, Lisa Bergren really knows the time period. The details she adds to the story make it clear that she is really knowledgeable about the era.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Kind of. Like i said earlier, i didn't really like the narrator, and i didn't think she was right for the book.
