About The Book:
When I was asked to review "Return To Exile," I hadn't read Lynne Gentry's first book in this series, "Healer of Carthage." So I spent the past weekend immersed in the ancient world of 3rd Century Carthage as I read both these two books as well as two prequel e-books, "A Perfect Fit" and "Shades of Surrender," and it was a delightful experience!
Gentry takes her readers tumbling from the present day right back to the dusty streets of Carthage with a cast of characters that are memorable and a storyline that is captivating.
I really enjoyed how Gentry managed to take Lisbeth Hastings, a modern day, independent woman - a doctor, no less - and have her fit comfortably in the ancient world she finds herself in as she searches for her long-lost mother and finds the love of her life along the way.
Fans of inspirational fiction will enjoy learning more about the early Christian church and the members who sacrificed so much for their belief. Fans of historical fiction will be fascinated with the ancient setting, and fans of romantic fiction will adore the love stories featured in these novels.
I highly recommend this installment of Gentry's "Chronicles of Carthage" series, and I look forward to the next book due out this summer.
