| 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.

I love historical fiction when it is done right and Lynn Austin has done it right. I liked the story of Israel returning to their homeland and how they struggled like so many struggle today in believing in what you can see and feel instead of having faith and believing in God. I think that this book can be a lesson for all of us in learning to lean on God and let Him lead us no matter what we can see or feel. Great book Will be looking for the next one in the series.
I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
