Searching for...

Waterfall Wednesdays discussion final week ~



our final week's discussion of
"Waterfall" 
is hosted by Irresistable Reads

1. After Gabi is injured, the doctor gives her a tonic.  Gabi questions the doctor several times what is in it but he refuses to tell.  Would you have taken the tonic in Gabi's situation?

that would have to be a no.  i would have asked cook
who would have known the remedies of the day...

2.  Before the games Gabi asks Lia to let Lord Forabosch win in the archery event as people, especially Lord Forabosch, are becoming suspicious of them.  But during the games Lord Forabosch upsets Lia trying to throw her off her game. So Lia decides to win.  Do you think she did the right thing by not letting Lord Forabosch bully her or do you think she took an unnecessary risk?

i don't think Lia could have caused Forabosch to do any worse
than he's already schemed.
i gave her credit for standing up to him.

3.  When Gabi is dying and she and Lia decide to return to the tombs so they can get the cure at home, they have to tell Marcello the truth.  Even though Marcello thinks that it is madness that they are from the future he believes in Gabi because he loves her.  Do you think this is believable?  What would you have done if you were Marcello?

his gullibility would easily have been proven
should their story have been disproven,
so he wasn't taking a big risk.
i would have followed suit.
what really was at risk?
Gabi's life was endangered.  Marcello acted in love.
he acted in response to the crisis with all his desire
to help her - believe her, trust her...

4.       In the end Gabi and Lia return home.  Do you think Gabi will return to Marcello? Would you go back?

i'm sure she will try.
ooo me?  i'm pretty stuck on life as we know it!
maybe if it was to go back to bring my man back with me!!

5.  Looking back at Waterfall what was your favourite moment?

probably discovering Lia.
the entire courageous confrontational escapade.

this exciting time travel novel is now concluded
BUT
the series continues....

discussions and each visitor who stopped in to visit!
i've entirely enjoyed the journey and look forward to more
River of Time adventures with Gabi and Marcello 
along with you...

I really like when we found out that Lia had made it too. At first I though she was still back in current times and never made the time travel back, but I'm sure glad she did...it added so much to the story.

I was worried that Lia had let go at a different time and was a hundred years farther down the pipe!!

i actually had worried the same - there'd been no guarantees they landed at the same time, so big questions in my mind as i read... yes, definitely added to the tale!

Julie said...

I too am a "life as we know it" kinda gal. No time travel for me thanks! Good answers!

I give Lea huge props for standing up to him as well even if it might have helped their cause if she didn't. I was cheering her on like crazy! Thanks so much for participating in WW!

I was thinking the same thing. Hold on Marcello we are going Back to the Future.

Serena Chase said...

somebody get me Doc Brown's DeLorean, okay? I'm already homesick for Medieval Italy!

Great answers! This has been so much fun!

Missie said...

I love the cover for book two. Lia looks so lovely on it. And it was fun discovering Lia and her courage. I'm glad she stood up to Foraosch, too.

Thanks for your answers this week and for joining us for WW! I had a blast!

I agree--I mean, what other options did he have, other than watching her die! He's a man of action, and falling in love...

There I go again, falling back into the story! Thanks for taking part in WW!
