Diving into....Waterfall

Hey all! Today is our second bi-weekly post, "In A Book". As mentioned before, we will be rotating it with our regular book discussions, which have been moved to Mondays. So, here we go! :-)

What Book? I picked one of my all-time favorite books, Waterfall. If you want to read my thoughts on this book, go HERE.

Gabriella has never spent a summer in Italy like this one.
Remaining means giving up all she’s known and loved…
and leaving means forfeiting what she’s come to know…and love itself.

Most American teenagers want a vacation in Italy, but the Bentarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives with their parents, famed Etruscan scholars, among the romantic hills. Stuck among the rubble of medieval castles in rural Tuscany on yet another hot, dusty archeological 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 fourteenth-century Italy. And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces.

And thus does she come to be rescued by the knight-prince Marcello Falassi, who takes her back to his father’s castle—a castle Gabi has seen in ruins in another life. Suddenly Gabi’s summer in Italy is much, much more interesting. But what do you do when your knight in shining armor lives, literally, in a different world?

Why that Book? You mean besides the fact that Waterfall is just totally and completely awesome??? lol! Besides THAT big incentive to get to be in this book, I love the medieval setting of the story. It would be so cool to get transported back in time along with the sisters and get to experience all that.
Another reason was everything the girls encounter. I'd love to be able to handle a sword like Gabi and run to the rescue of my dear sister. Or stand beside a seasoned knight and fight the Paratore soldiers so that the fair lady can make it to safety. Or....oh! Just any of the adventures they encounter along the way. :-)

And finally, Which Character would I be? This is a hard one! I'd definitely be either Gabi or Lia. In regards to their personality, I am more like Gabi. But then I think I have a bigger crush on Luca then Marcello (though they are both awesome!), lol. But, in the end, even though I love Luca's fun personality, if I jumped into Waterfall's storyplot, I'd want to be Gabi. :-)

So there you have it! There's our first In A Book post! Want to join in the fun? Feel free! Comment and let us know what book you would choose to be in and why?

This post was written entirely for fun and does not suggest that we want to be any other person than who God made us.
