About the Book:
“Whatever the past bequeaths to us, know this: God is the one with the ultimate control of the future.” (p.333)
Return To Exile was an unexpected adventure for me! I never read too much of a book’s description before beginning a story, and I’d have Lynne Gentry’s work highly recommended to me, so I jumped in with no preconceived ideas. What an adventure! Looking at the artwork on the cover, I wrongly expected biblical fiction. What I got instead was so much more!
Dr. Lisbeth Hastings is a time traveler of sorts. She apparently met and married her husband in another century all together! (I MUST read the first book of this series!) Now, the mother of a child conceived in another place and time, she longs to reunite with her husband and introduce him to his daughter. Lisbeth is also determined to eliminate a disease that is part of an immunization in the present age, but it a plague in an earlier time. That twist in the plot makes this book fascinating! There is timeless romance, medical transcendence, a very unique family dynamic that encompasses the time travel and so much more!
The spiritual truths presented are represented in the lives of Christ’s earliest followers! I love it when an author is able to represent early Christianity so well! Cyprian Thascius is a very real representation of the challenges faced by the first Christians. The love he and Lisbeth shares through time is a beautiful representation of grace.
There is just so much to enjoy and appreciate in this story! I highly recommend Return to Exile! And I know I must go back and read the first installment of this series! I can’t believe I missed it! The Carthage Chronicles are not to be missed!
