Litfuse presents Return To Me by Lynn Austin…Plus win a Kindle Fire

About the book: From the Acclaimed Author of Chronicles of the KingsAfter 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—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.

Bringing the Old Testament to vibrant life, Return to Metells 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.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Iddo is thrilled that the he and the rest of the Jews in Babylon are allowed to return to this beloved homeland to rebuild the temple.  This is a part of Bible history I knew about, but didn’t know the vivid details until I read Lynn Austin’s Return to Me. To understand this book better, I read the scripture that Lynn listed in the back of the book along with the book, to better understand to book. I was in awe of the accurate details and I loved all of the history I learned while reading this book. I love this entire story. A few of my favorites were Zechariah and Yale and their friendship, and Dinah and her struggles with leaving her family behind. I was happy when she finally found something the keep her occupied and make her feel useful. A lot of the things I knew before, but my memory was refreshed through reading the different scenes here. There is so much in this book, and I don’t want to give any of it away….so I will just say that if you enjoy Biblical or historical fiction, or both….then you need to read this one. You will surely not be disappointed!

I received this book from Litfuse to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
