This review is from: Return to Me: Volume 1 (The Restoration Chronicles) (Paperback)
This retelling of portion of Ezra-Nehemiah is masterful. I do love works of fiction which bring Old Testament scriptures to life and this book is no exception. It tells the story of Zechariah and his grandfather, Iddo, as they return to Jerusalem under the edict from King Cyrus and brings to life what this trip and subsequent rebuilding must have been like for the families involved. It drew me back to the biblical text on several occasions as I sought to trace through some of the detail which I was reading in Austin's writing and gave this portion of Scripture a new vibrancy for me.
I received a free e-copy of this book from NetGalley in return for a fair review.
