Editorial Reviews


"Compelling. Return to Exile took me to a time period that I had never been that interested in and built a sympathetic heart in me for the horrific things Christians had to face in that area and time. Because Lynne Gentry's characters are so well-developed, they took up residence in my thoughts and have lingered there for over a week after I finished reading the book. Of course, I can hardly wait until the next book comes out. I believe every Christian should read these books to give them an awareness of how blessed we are to be able to live our beliefs without fearing for our lives.” (Lena Nelson Dooley, author of the double-award-winning Catherine's Pursuit )

“Return to Exile, Lynne Gentry’s sweeping saga of lost dreams, epic struggles, sinister passions, and unrequited love—all playing out against the stunning backdrop of third-century Rome—returns to enthrall readers of her earlier Healer of Carthage. With surprising twists readers won’t see coming, Gentry has created an inspiring story few will be able to put down until the final page. I am a huge fan of the Carthage Chronicles series, and of author Lynne Gentry. Can hardly wait for the final installment to see how everything turns out for Dr. Lisbeth Hastings!” (Kellie Coates Gilbert, author of A Woman of Fortune )

“Gentry has done it again! Book two in the The Carthage Chronicles had me weeping and cheering right along with the main characters, Lisbeth and Cyprian. Their struggle to forge a life from the ashes of Carthage’s diseased city made my heart pound, and as the peril facing them ratcheted, so did my pulse rate. Add Gentry’s enviable talent for wordsmithing, and Return to Exile makes for an incredibly entertaining read.” (Elizabeth Ludwig, author of Tide and Tempest )

“In Return to Exile, Lynne Gentry takes readers on another breathtaking journey as they are transported with Lisbeth from the twenty-first century back to third-century Carthage. But this time, while Lisbeth thinks she's prepared for what awaits her on the other side of the Cave of the Swimmers, there's no way for her to anticipate the frightening reality, as she is thrown into a impossible situation that will leave readers begging for more.” (Lisa Harris, author of the Christy Award-winning novel Dangerous Passage )

“Author Lynne Gentry has done it again! Return to Exile is a high-stakes adventure filled with unforgettable characters and amazing historical details. Gentry doesn't just write with boldness and authenticity but delivers powerful messages in the midst of the plot twists and turns. Turn the page to return to ancient Carthage and join Dr. Lisbeth Hastings in this time-traveling journey!” (Elizabeth Byler Younts, author of Promise to Return )

"This exciting new series uniquely pairs time travel and an inspirational love story to create an adventure well worth taking. Lisbeth’s refusal to allow anyone close to her heart is as much of a challenge to Cyprian as the Roman government’s insistence on routing out Christians. The cliffhanger ending leaves their marriage and the history of Carthage both in question, with the promise of more thrills to come." (Romantic Times (four stars))

“. . . an emotional ending that will leave readers wanting more.” (Romantic Times on Return to Exile (4.5 stars))
