ENDORSEMENTS FOR THE RIVER OF TIME SERIES:

PRAISE FOR CASCADE (Book #2):

“A romantic tale that twists and turns with every page, Cascade is the ideal sequel to Waterfall. A riveting tale to the very end, this adventure follows Gabi back into the arms of the dashing Marcello as the events of history unfold around them in the present. Lisa T. Bergren leaves us with only one question: Can their love transcend time? Read this book–you won’t regret it. I could hardly put it down!” –Shannon Primicerio, author of The Divine Dance, God Called a Girl, and the TrueLife Bible study series

“While I found Waterfall to be thoroughly enjoyable, I thought Cascade was completely captivating. It’s so refreshing to read teen lit that isn’t full of darkness but is still exciting. The characters aren’t just more Bella and Edward wannabes–they have a fresh romance all their own, and that love story feels utterly real. I’ll be recommending this book to my teen readers every chance I get.” –Lindsay Olson, teen specialist, Pikes Peak Library District

PRAISE FOR WATERFALL (Book #1):

“I love stories about strong, capable young women–and I love stories set in other countries. Mix in a little time travel and some colorful characters, and Lisa Bergren has stirred up an exciting and memorable tale that teen readers should thoroughly enjoy!”  –Melody Carlson, author of the Diary of a Teenage Girl and TrueColors series

“As the mother of two teens and two preteens, I found Waterfall to be a gutsy but clean foray into the young adult genre for Lisa T. Bergren, who handles it with a grace and style all her own. Gabriella Betarrini yanked me out of my time and into a harrowing adventure as she battles knights–and love! I heartily enjoyed Gabriella’s travel back into time and I heartily look forward to Cascade, River of Time #2!” –Ronie Kendig, author of Nightshade

“I loved every minute of this adventure that took me out of our time and into the fourteenth century, and I marveled at how true to life teenage Gabi remained when facing extraordinary circumstances. Under Bergren’s guidance, I look forward to time traveling again in the next book of the River of Time series.” –Donita K. Paul, best-selling author of the DragonKeeper Chronicles and the Chiril Chronicles

“Diving into Waterfall reminded me why Lisa T. Bergren is one of my favorite authors. Unfolding adventures, fascinating characters, and exciting plot twists make this a stellar read. I loved it! Highly recommended!” –Tricia Goyer, award-winning author of twenty-five books, including The Swiss Courier

 

WHY I WROTE THE RIVER OF TIME SERIES:

My daughter was a reluctant reader. I tried book after book, but could not get her to willingly sit down and read a book to save my life—which is especially irritating when you’re an author! It wasn’t until I brought home Twilight that Olivia was hooked, reading way past bedtime, thinking about the characters all day, and eagerly returning home so she could read some more!

I read the series with her and we discussed them. But mostly I encouraged her to stay engaged…I was so glad to see her break through that fiction barrier and finally see what a good story was like. When we went to the first movie together, I looked around at all those girls who were so excited to be there, to see the tale turned into film, and I thought, “Man, I’d love to write for this audience too. Give them all the romance, and all the suspense, but skip the vampires.”

And that’s how the River of Time was born.

What surprised me most was how much fun I had writing them—I hope I get to keep writing for young adults. I love their enthusiasm and fresh perspective.

 

SERIES SUMMARY FOR THE RIVER OF TIME:

Gabriella and Evangelia Betarrini are the daughters of Etruscan archeologists. Stuck on a hot, dusty dig site for yet another long, dreary summer—far from the nearest boys—they go exploring. They enter a forbidden tomb and find two handprints among the frescoes. And when they touch them, together, they are catapulted back in time…and into the adventure of their lives.

 

WATERFALL SUMMARY:

While most American teens would kill for an Italian vacation, the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives there with their archaeologist parents. And they’re not happy to be back. 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. Gabi emerges in the middle of a dream–or nightmare?–with hot Italian knights in a fierce battle. And so begins her quest to return home…while wondering if she wants to at all.

 

CASCADE SUMMARY:

Gabi knows she’s left her heart in the fourteenth century and she persuades Lia to help her to return, even though they know doing so will risk their very lives. When they arrive, weeks have passed and all of Siena longs to celebrate the heroines who turned the tide in the battle against Florence—while the Fiorentini will go to great lengths to see them dead. But Marcello patiently awaits, and Gabi must decide if she’s willing to leave her family behind for good in order to give her heart to him forever.

 

TORRENT SUMMARY:

Gabi and Lia Betarrini have learned to control their time travel, and they return from medieval Italy to save their father from his tragic death in modern times.   But love calls across the centuries, and the girls are determined to return forever—even though they know the Black Plague is advancing across Europe, claiming the lives of one-third of the population. In this suspenseful installment of the River of Time series, every decision is about life … and death.

 

BOURNE SUMMARY:

In this e-novella, River of Time #3.1, the dramatic tale about the Betarrinis and Forellis continues, picking up directly after where Torrent left off… The battle is done at the front, but the battle is only beginning back at Castello Forelli. Marcello fights for his life; Lord Greco fights to find his place; and Lia fights for love.

  4. Hi Lisa, (or should I call you lady Lisa Bergren) I have read all of your books (well of the river of time series) and I have fallen in love with both Gabi, her family and friends. I am also very excited and I am looking forward to meet you with my lunch bunch group at my school (I am not allowed to post which school, family rule : ) . I am in love with your work and have been inspired to begin writing my own "books" ( they are only 30 pages long, but hey its a start.) I am scared to show them to others though. I am afraid that they will make fun of me. Did you ever hesitate sending your books to the publisher? Also, I am saving up my money to buy a River Tribe T-shirt! :D I am going to wear it like every day!

    • Oh, I’d LOVE to see a movie. I just need the right producer or director or actor to get passionate about it and make it happen. I have no power in Hollywood!
