Return to Exile With Lynne Gentry Book #Review!

About the book:

Return to Exile (Howard Books, January 2015)

How far would you go to save the ones you love?

Six years ago, impossible circumstances forced Dr. Lisbeth Hastings to leave behind the love of her life, not just in another country, but in another time. Her work as a top-notch epidemiologist and parenting her little girl helps alleviate the pain, but at night when her exhausted head hits the pillow, images of her beloved Cyprian haunt her sleep.

Cyprian Thascius returns from political exile a broken man. He's lost his faith, the love of his life, and his purpose. He attempts to move on, to face the danger that is looming over Carthage, but when Cyprian's true love suddenly reappears, his heart becomes as imperiled as the fledgling church he seeks to save.

Have the years that kept Lisbeth and Cyprian apart created too wide a chasm to bridge? In the midst of a new epidemic and rising oppression, will their love be the most costly fatality? Filled with gripping action and raw emotion, this spell-binding adventure of star-crossed lovers captivates with every turn of the page in this electric continuation of The Carthage Chronicles.

MY REVIEW-Lynne Gentry has done what no other author has been able to do for me. Get me interested in fantasy Christian fiction. I had never read a story like this before reading her first one and I knew from the start that I would be anxiously awaiting the second book in this series. So when it arrived, I devoured it. And yes, I mean that:)

The heroine is one that I liked a lot. Lisbeth has a strong character and she knows what she wants in life. The hero I had a little difficulty with in this one. The first book I really, really liked him. He stands strong in his faith and is a perfect hero. But this one shows him as wavering, unsure of his faith and so on. Which I know happens in real life, but it was almost too much of a change for him. Believe me though, that minor part didn't deter me from reading straight through this book in one day. Excellent research that shows in the details. Loved it!!
