RETURN TO ME by Lynn Austin

I have never read a Lynn Austin book, I chose to read Return to Me (The Restoration Chronicles) because I wanted to read a good novel and I enjoy reading Biblical fiction.  I just could not get into this novel, the pace is slow and my busy schedule was not conducive to allowing my imagination to take me away into the land of Old Testament times.
Faith and obedience are an obvious theme within the story as it pertains to the characters. Return to Me (The Restoration Chronicles)by Lynn Austin is as the title implies a novel about God’s children turning from their worldly ways back to Him.
This is a book that requires not only some Biblical knowledge but also time to explore the various concepts woven within each chapter.  What makes a good novel is one that is pleasurable and makes you think unfortunately Return to Me (The Restoration Chronicles) was not as pleasurable as I would have liked.  
Perhaps if I had had time to read the first four chapters uninterrupted thereby developing the proper foundation I might have been able to appreciate this book a little more. Unfortunately, I had to reread the first chapter twice because of interruptions.
This is a book you are either going to love or find OK, which makes it a good book but not a great one.  I recommend this book; I would suggest you check the book out of the library. xxx Marsha L Randolph

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a fair review.
