THE GIFTED HAVE A POWERFUL ENEMY, AND HE WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO DESTROY THEM ALL...
The fellowship of the Gifted is complete at last, and each has a divine purpose, allowing them to forge ahead together as catalysts in the war between light and dark. Among them are Gianni de Capezzana and Daria d'Angelo, a couple ready to face the Church and yet anxious to avoid a fatal judgement as heretics. Trailed by the enemy, and on the run in an unknown land, they're offered tenuous sanctuary...
Behind the walls of the wondrous Castle Les Baux, Gianni and Daria find respite and, at long last, love. Together, they see miracle upon miracle unfold. Yet the enemy haunts their every step and promises that the Gifted will know ultimate defeat, using any means he can--including the Church leaders they must face. But God has a plan and the Gifted will do everything they can to follow where he leads...even if they must face death itself.
An illuminated letter, long buried by the Church—prophesying a fellowship of men and women possessing powerful spiritual gifts—is the catalyst for a profound war that will bring either a new age of enlightenment or a darkness the world has never before seen. As the Gifted gather, gain strength, and follow God's clues, their enemies grow determined to control them.
Watching the Gifted from afar is Cardinal Boeri, who wants to use the blessed power of the Gifted to secure his own place in the hierarchy of the Church, while the duke of Venezia has reasons of his own to seize control. But the greatest menace is Lord Abramo Amidei, driven to turn the healer, Daria d'Angelo, to his own fold—or to destroy her. And as he schemes to tear apart the fabric of her faith by preying upon those she loves, Amidei knows that together the Gifted are undeniably strong and growing stronger. But if he can succeed in dividing them, the Gifted—and then the world—will be his.

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. In Book One of the River of Time series, Gabi and Lia are stuck among the rubble of medieval castles in rural Tuscany on yet another hot, boring, and dusty archeological site . . . 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 she comes 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?
