Lynn Austin’s “Return To Me” Kindle HDX Giveaway and Facebook Party | Enter and RSVP today!

Welcome to the blog tour for Lynn Austin's newest book Return to Me.  This is her first book in The Restoration Chronicles series.  Below you will find information about the book, my review, info about the author and how to enter the giveaway for a Kindle HDX!  Thanks for stopping by!


About the book: From the Acclaimed Author of Chronicles of the Kings

After 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 Me tells 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 Review:
What  a great book!  Lynn Austin has quickly become one of my favorite authors.  I love how she can interest me in the story right from the start.  The feeling and emotion she writes into her characters really makes you connect with them.  This series is unique in that it fictionalizes the biblical account of the return of the exiles from Babylon to Jerusalem.  I love how it helps me to identify with the human side of the characters from the Bible.  They were people just like us with fears, worries, and dreams for the future.  It was great to revisit this time of biblical history as I don't really read these portions of Scripture often.  This book has made me anxious to get out my Bible and re-read these passages of Scripture.  Lynn Austin has done a fabulous job with inspiring the reader to be in the Word and to remember the great truths of our God.  If you're looking for a great series to start, then make sure to pick up this book!
