This is the first book that I have read by author Lynn Austin. I have heard so many wonderful things about her so I finally got this book. Oh it was amazing. I absolutely loved it. I read it in a few days and she really had me hooked from the beginning. I have the next two books in the Restoration Chronicles series right here and I am going to start on the next one immediately. The characters really came alive for me and I realized that if this is what Biblical fiction is all about then I’m in 100%!
I loved the story. It was about the returning of the Jews after the exile. The characters were so real and I loved the references to the Bible in this book. I highly recommend this book and this is definitely a new favorite author for me. I give this book 5***** all the way around.
