Book Description: How far would you go to save the ones you love?
Six years ago, impossible circumstances forced Dr. Lisbeth Hastings to leave behind the love of her life, not just in another country, but in another time. Her work as a top-notch epidemiologist and parenting her little girl helps alleviate the pain, but at night when her exhausted head hits the pillow, images of her beloved Cyprian haunt her sleep.
Cyprian Thascius returns from political exile a broken man. He’s lost his faith, the love of his life, and his purpose. He attempts to move on, to face the danger that is looming over Carthage, but when Cyprian’s true love suddenly reappears, his heart becomes as imperiled as the fledgling church he seeks to save.
Have the years that kept Lisbeth and Cyprian apart created too wide a chasm to bridge? In the midst of a new epidemic and rising oppression, will their love be the most costly fatality? Filled with gripping action and raw emotion, this spellbinding adventure of star-crossed lovers captivates with every turn of the page in this electric continuation of The Carthage Chronicles.
Let me start by saying that this is the second book in The Carthage Chronicles and I highly recommend reading Book 1 before you move on to this one. But even if you don’t, you will still find this an exciting, compelling read. This book takes you back in time with Dr. Lisbeth Hastings to 3rd century Rome, an era where it cost something to be a Christian. Since the author writes in a true-to-life style, some of the descriptions are a bit hard to absorb, but they do make you grateful for living in this time when we are free to express our faith. This exciting book uniquely pairs time travel and an inspirational love story to create an adventure well worth taking. It is a very intriguing and emotional read.
