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

I didn’t read the first book in this series, and for that reason, it took me a while to get into this story. But after a while, I started really enjoying this fascinating book. Ms. Gentry did a really good job of keeping the story interesting as she weaves together the past and present, the loss and struggles. Return to Exile is a book that will keep you on the edge of your seats, the twists and turns were amazing, and most of them I found myself pretty much surprised! I was like, where did that come from! Which I loved! And the details, the vivid descriptions of the scenes, and was like being there while I was reading. I will definitely be picking up the first book in this series, as well as watching for book three!

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.
