Having rescued her father from a certain death, she is determined to never lose him again. Gabi, Lia and her parents again face trouble but find happiness and truly have grown much before their years and learned to accept that life is short and you must treasure each moment as if it were your last and make life altering choices from the heart to stay alive as long as you can for those you love. As much as I hate to leave the characters I grow to love in the series, every subject was discussed, and I felt satisfied upon the conclusion. Three books are fulfilling to end on.

Rambling Reader5 Stars Out Of 5Swept Away...February 29, 2012Rambling ReaderQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I finished reading Cascade, I planned to wait a few months before reading Torrent, enjoying the anticipation of what the pages would hold. Torrent tempted me from the bookcase for just a couple of weeks, before I succumbed to the pull. Once again, I was swept away with Gabi's story. This time, the novel begins with a tug on the heartstrings as Gabi and her family are reunited with her father. His fatherly perspective adds an extra dimension to the growing love between Gabi and Marcello, and creates some humorous moments.
As the entire Betarrini family travels back to Italy, the excitement begins. New challenges and battles,which I will not reveal, keep the plot fresh. Romance and faith take precedence in Torrent, as Gabi contemplates her future. Although Gabi's struggles take place in another time, her questions and temptations are very realistic and relevant for today's readers. The romance element lends itself to a few "steamier" scenes, but they are offset by a message of restraint in the face of temptation. The sure and steady faith of Marcello and other characters are positive examples to both Gabi and readers. Of the three books in the River of Time Series,Torrent offers the best balance of action and emotion.
Bergren takes the reader to other areas of Italy in Torrent, including ancient Rome. Her clear and vivid descriptions paint a scene as masterful as the frescoes that define Rome's architecture. I enjoyed the change in scenery and the new twists those changes introduced. Torrent is the perfect ending to an amazing series. I loved Bergren's references to the River of Time and the symbolism of waterfall, cascade, and torrent. The novel tied all three books together, yet left room for more...and I am certainly thirsting for more!
