Return To Me – Book Review
When you read your Bible, have you ever wondered what it was like to live during biblical times? Have you ever wanted to take an in-depth look at the people who lived then? Do you wish you could learn more about their lives?
If so, add award-winning Lynn Austin to your list of must-read authors!
Lynn’s newest book, Return To Me, is the first in her new Biblical fiction series, The Restoration Chronicles. This series chronicles the return of the Israelites to Jerusalem after years of captivity in Babylon. Lynn brings the Old Testament to life as she tells the compelling story of two men living by faith in the midst of doubt, the women who love them, and the faithful remnant struggling to rebuild their lives in obedience to the God who beckons them home.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the book:
After decades of exile, the prophesies are coming true – King Cyrus has declared the Jews may return to Jerusalem. Iddo, a priest, is sure this is a sign of God’s renewed favor. For too long they’ve remained in Babylon, and many, including Iddo’s sons, are losing the faith that sets them apart. And so, only a few choose to leave everything to return to their home and their God.
Nothing about their journey to the Promised Land is easy. As hardships mount, even the faithful, like Iddo’s beloved wife, Dinah, question the sacrifice of following God’s leading. Zechariah, Iddo’s oldest grandson, feels torn between his grandfather’s ancient beliefs and the family they left behind. But one life-changing encounter with the Holy One gives him insight that will change Zechariah – and history – forever.
Return To Me is a captivating story that brings the Old Testament books of Ezra and Nehemiah to life. This is the first book by Lynn that I’ve read, and I was hooked from the start!
Lynn is a gifted writer and Return To Me is an amazing story that captures the hopes, longings and frailties of the human spirit.
Lynn has written a 5/5 star book that I highly recommend to you!
