    This is a very long book. It is historical and Biblical fiction. Lynn Austin is a very good writer.

    She follows the Jews as they leave Babylon and journey to Jerusalem. Just as today people make decisions and live with the consequences of those choices. They are either good or bad.

    Are sacrifices made out of duty or love? What will happen on this journey? Will love and forgiveness enter into lives? Why?

    Read the book.

    Since I usually do not read Biblical fiction, this was quite a story and very long.

    It was given to me by Bookfun.org for review and my honest opinion.

    CBD has a good price for this book.

    After reading the outstanding Kings Chronicle series I've been anxiously awaiting another series from Lynn Austin. This book starts out a bit slow, but stay with it... it's a great book. There are many points and lessons to ponder. It is very relatable and applicable for all Christians. Highly recommended.

    After years of watching his children and grandchildren wander from their faith, Iddo's prayers are answered: King Cyrus is allowing God's chosen people to return to Jerusalem. Jubilant, he joyfully prepares for their departure, only to learn that his family, grown comfortable in the pagan culture of Babylon, wants to remain.

    Zechariah, Iddo's oldest grandson, feels torn between his grandfather's ancient beliefs and the comfort and success his father enjoys in Babylon. But he soon begins to hear the voice of God, encouraging him to return to the land given to his forefathers.

    Bringing to life the biblical books of Ezra and Nehemiah, Return to Me tells the compelling story of Iddo and Zechariah, the women who love them, and the faithful followers who struggle to rebuild their lives in obedience to the God who beckons them home.

    My Review:

    I must admit that I didn't know a lot about the Jew's return from exile to Jerusalem. I've read the Biblical account, and I know all the basic details. But Austin brings this period in Biblical history to life with her engaging style of writing, draws you in to the people and places, and created a story that makes you feel as if it could have happened. While there are many character studies, it is easy to keep pace with the story. You will instantly be transported to a world and place where history was made every day. If you love Biblical history, then you will be amazed at the richness of this novel, it's people, and the words by Austin that make it all happen. I do recommend this to mature readers only, because some of the themes in this novel portrays the behavior of the Babylonians and Samaritans of that time period and are not for young eyes.

    I can't say enough about this book. I've read all of Lynn's books and I believe this one is probably very top of the list. Leaves me thinking about it and the lessons in it all through the day. Can't wait for more.
