Valley of Decision by Lynne Gentry

I received this book from Litfuse group in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: September 22, 2015
Number of pages: 400
Genre: Christian, Historical Fiction
Series: The Carthage Chronicles

Every choice has a consequence in the explosive conclusion to the Carthage Chronicles as Lisbeth returns to third-century Carthage for a thrilling final adventure.

Thirteen years ago, Lisbeth made an impossible decision—leave third-century Carthage and her husband Cyprian behind for good. She knew it was to protect her daughter Maggie, so Lisbeth gathered the strength to move on with her life.

All these years, Lisbeth has thrown herself into her work and raising her headstrong daughter, all to live up to the promise she made to Cyprian. But Maggie is sick of being protected. In an act of teenage rebellion Maggie decides to do what her mother can’t—secretly returning to the third century on a quest to bring her father back, leaving Lisbeth no choice but to follow.

With Maggie’s surprise arrival in Carthage, chaos ensues. She finds her grandmother on trial for murder and attempts to save her, but instead the diversion sparks a riot that nearly destroys the plagued city. Only one thing will appease the wrath of the new proconsul of Carthage: the death of the instigator.

Will Lisbeth arrive in time to save her daughter from the clutches of Rome? How can God possibly redeem such a slew of unwise decisions and deep regrets? Filled with heart-wrenching twists and riveting action, Valley of Decision brings the romantic adventure epic, The Carthage Chronicles, to an electrifying conclusion.

What did I think of this book:
This book was a great ending to a powerful series. I did not want it to end. There was plenty of twists, turns and action and I found myself trying to read faster so I could see what was going to happen next. The detail the author uses in this book is so great you feel as if you can really see what she is talking about. I also felt as if she really did her research in writing this book. Of course I love the time travel aspect of this book - what would it be like if you could go back in time. I also thought that this book was appropriately named as there were some hard decisions to be made during the story. I highly recommed this series but you must start with book one and continue on.
