n a story drawn from the Old Testament books of Ezra and Nehemiah, Ezra, a Jewish scholar, is called upon to deliver his exiled people from Babylon to Jerusalem--but the fight to keep God's Law is never easy:YOUNG ADULT (YA)
Return to Me (The Restoration Chronicles #1) by Lynn Austin. Bestselling Author Lynn Austin Launches New Biblical Saga. Bringing to life the biblical books of Ezra and Nehemiah, Return to Me tells the compelling story of Iddo and Zechariah, the women who love them, and the faithful followers who struggle to rebuild their lives in obedience to the God who beckons them home.
I will have to say by reading this amazing novel, I realized I was ignorant of the Reconstruction period in history. To say it honestly, I was ignorant of slavery altogether. Having said that, if you want what feels like a real life account of post-war South, this is the book for you. Once again Austin writes as if she was really there experiencing history in the making.
