Product Description

Dr. Lisbeth Hastings salvaged two things from her accidental trip to the third century: her mother's stethoscope and her child. Making a life for her daughter Maggie back in the present is difficult, but returning to ancient Carthage is impossible. However, when Lisbeth learns her husband is slated to die a martyr's death, she must find a way around the impossible to save him.

Cyprian Thascius returns from political exile a broken man. He's lost his faith, the love of his life, and his purpose. When Ruth, an old friend, proposes he marry her to restore his position and protect his estate, the disgraced nobleman accepts. But when Cyprian's true love suddenly reappears, his heart becomes as imperiled as the fledgling church.

Publisher's Description

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 spellbinding adventure of star-crossed lovers captivates with every turn of the page in this electric continuation of The Carthage Chronicles.

Editorial Reviews

"Compelling. Return to Exile took me to a time period that I had never been that interested in and built a sympathetic heart in me for the horrific things Christians had to face in that area and time. Because Lynne Gentry's characters are so well-developed, they took up residence in my thoughts and have lingered there for over a week after I finished reading the book. Of course, I can hardly wait until the next book comes out. I believe every Christian should read these books to give them an awareness of how blessed we are to be able to live our beliefs without fearing for our lives.”
“Return to Exile, Lynne Gentry’s sweeping saga of lost dreams, epic struggles, sinister passions, and unrequited love—all playing out against the stunning backdrop of third-century Rome—returns to enthrall readers of her earlier Healer of Carthage. With surprising twists readers won’t see coming, Gentry has created an inspiring story few will be able to put down until the final page. I am a huge fan of the Carthage Chronicles series, and of author Lynne Gentry. Can hardly wait for the final installment to see how everything turns out for Dr. Lisbeth Hastings!”
“Gentry has done it again! Book two in the The Carthage Chronicles had me weeping and cheering right along with the main characters, Lisbeth and Cyprian. Their struggle to forge a life from the ashes of Carthage’s diseased city made my heart pound, and as the peril facing them ratcheted, so did my pulse rate. Add Gentry’s enviable talent for wordsmithing, and Return to Exile makes for an incredibly entertaining read.”
“In Return to Exile, Lynne Gentry takes readers on another breathtaking journey as they are transported with Lisbeth from the twenty-first century back to third-century Carthage. But this time, while Lisbeth thinks she's prepared for what awaits her on the other side of the Cave of the Swimmers, there's no way for her to anticipate the frightening reality, as she is thrown into a impossible situation that will leave readers begging for more.”
“Author Lynne Gentry has done it again! Return to Exile is a high-stakes adventure filled with unforgettable characters and amazing historical details. Gentry doesn't just write with boldness and authenticity but delivers powerful messages in the midst of the plot twists and turns. Turn the page to return to ancient Carthage and join Dr. Lisbeth Hastings in this time-traveling journey!”
"This exciting new series uniquely pairs time travel and an inspirational love story to create an adventure well worth taking. Lisbeth’s refusal to allow anyone close to her heart is as much of a challenge to Cyprian as the Roman government’s insistence on routing out Christians. The cliffhanger ending leaves their marriage and the history of Carthage both in question, with the promise of more thrills to come."
“. . . an emotional ending that will leave readers wanting more.”

    Lynne Gentry in her new book, Return To Exile Book Two in The Carthage Chronicles series published by Howard Books continues the story of Dr. Lisbeth Hastings.

    From the back cover: 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. Hes 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 Cyprians true love suddenly reappears, his heart becomes as imperiled as the fledgling church he seeks to save.

Filled with gripping action and raw emotion, this spellbinding adventure of star-crossed lovers captivates with every turn of the page in this electric continuation of The Carthage Chronicles.

    Lynne Gentry has given us one of the most imaginative and clever series that I have encountered. Historical fiction and time travel. Two elements that if not handled correctly can spell doom for the reader. Have no fear Ms. Gentry is an expert crafts-person and puts them together perfectly. Return To Exile is a great ride! Like a great play this is the second act and all second acts are a bit dark and end with a cliffhanger. Lisbeth has gone back in time again with Maggie, Lisbeths and Cyprians daughter. There is all kinds of danger, the church is in chaos, Cyprian is in danger and to protect himself he may marry someone he doesnt love and there is typhoid. Ms. Gentry has given us an action adventure tale that will get your nerves all jangled as you read furiously trying to keep up with the story. And there is the romance. Plus this is a thriller that just drips with suspense so be prepared. I guarantee you, you will not be disappointed in reading this book. The characters are marvelous and they live and breathe on these pages. I am glad I found this wonderful author and I am so looking forward to book three!

    I COULD NOT wait for this book to come out. The first book in this series left me wanting MORE! I love that there are 2 e-shorts to give you insight into some of the other characters as well. On to Return to Exile.

    It's safe to say that I read this book in less than 24 hours. I couldn't put it down. While the first book was fast paced and had me turning the pages to see if my favorite characters were safe, this one delves much deeper into the emotional trama my favorite characters are going through. I loved the added depth to those characters. Lynne Gentry writes about each character so well that it's hard for me to pick a favorite. In one chapter, I am cheering for Lisbeth and my heart is breaking for Ruth. Then in the next chapter, it is reveresed. I love being able to identify with these strong, Christian women. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the time travel aspect, because I'm kind of obsessed with history.

    Do yourself a favor and buy this book, and the first book in this triology...AND the e-shorts. Fall in love with these characters as I have. You won't regret it!!

    I don't like time-travel storylines, really I don't. But last year I read Healer of Carthage and was completely drawn into the story. When Return to Exile came out I knew I had to read it just to find out what happened next.

    For the first few chapters I was enthralled. Lisbeth is in Dallas during the current year. She is now a practicing epidemiologist and finds herself in the midst of a very serious outbreak. She's busy with her work and raising her daughter but she continues to think about those she left behind in Carthage.

    Cyprian, Lisbeth's husband, is still in the past living in exile. He eventually makes his way back to Carthage only to find the city devastated by a plague. His mother-in-law Magdalena and Lisbeth's friend Ruth have set up a makeshift hospital to care for the sick and dying in his home. Members of the church have come alongside to help them.

    The angst and tension between the two different worlds is great. I found myself quickly flipping pages just to see where the story was going. Eventually the characters are reunited in Carthage. That's when my interest hit a snag. I hate to say it but I just don't like Cyprian. In the first book I did, but now, not so much! To cut him a little slack I will say that there were some other people that added to my discontent with him, but ultimately it was him.

    Don't get me wrong, the writing is still superb. Lynne is masterful at giving detailed descriptions of the events without boring you to death. The funny part is that at some point I even forgot that I was reading a dreaded time travel book. The storyline just kept me riveted and I found myself believing the plausibility of the tale.

    This book is part of a three part series. There was a cliff-hanger ending with the first and there is another cliff-hanger ending with this second book. Will I be reading the third book when it comes out? You bet!

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    This review was written for Return To Exile, Carthage Chronicles Series #2.
    A bit of time travel combined with a fictional tale based on actual historical facts is what the reader finds when she opens the pages of first "The Healer of Carthage" and now the greatly anticipated second volume of The Carthage Chronicles, "Return to Exile". A love story that spans the centuries, "Return to Exile"paints a graphic picture of the dangers faced by the early Christians in Roman Carthage. Surrounded on every side by deadly epidemics, power-seeking politicians, or disgruntled traitors, daily existence is a trial that takes nearly superhuman effort just to survive. Yet knowing the dangers, Dr. Lisbeth Hastings makes the choice to return, hoping her modern medical knowledge can make a difference in history.

    Lynne Gentry has written a compelling novel that is at times difficult to read but equally difficult to put down. This story has it all time travel, romance, danger, intrigue, a few surprises, and historical facts that are interwoven with a story of a faith to die for and characters willing to lay down their own lives for others. "Healer of Carthage" and now "Return to Exile"each have cliffhanger endings that leave the reader craving the next installment.

    Lovers of Biblical fiction, this series is not to be missed. I am quite certain others will love it also.

    A copy of this book was provided for review by the author in exchange for my honest review.
