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 spell-binding adventure of star-crossed lovers captivates with every turn of the page in this electric continuation of The Carthage Chronicles.

Return to Exile is the second book in The Carthage Chronicles, and it is every bit as heart-pounding, page-turning suspenseful, and riveting as the first book. The plot catches your attention from the very beginning and you will be kept on the edge of your seat through the entire book. I wasn't surprised by another cliff hanger (only spoiler I will give) and I am excited to read book three once it releases. The author's descriptive writing will take you back in time like never before. It is absolutely stunning and I felt as though I was experiencing each step that the characters did. All the characters have been developed wonderfully and I cannot see what is next for them!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
