Lynne Gentry in her new book, “Valley Of Decision book coverValley Of Decision” Book Three in The Carthage Chronicles series published by Howard Books continues the story of Dr. Lisbeth Hastings.

From the back cover:    Can true love survive the test of time?

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.

This is the third book of The Carthage Chronicles series and if you have not read the previous two books I recommend you do that first. “Valley of Decision” is a great ride that is going to sew up all the outstanding elements of this series! There is all kinds of danger, Maggie’s grandmother is in danger and in an effort to protect her causes a bit of chaos with her punishment being death. Lisbeth has to go back in time again to protect everyone but this is not going to be easy. Ms. Gentry has given us an action adventure tale that will get your nerves all jangled as you read furiously trying to keep up with the story.  And there is the romance.  Plus this is a thriller that just drips with suspense so be prepared. I guarantee you, you will not be disappointed in reading this book.  Maggie, Lisbeth, Cyprian and the whole cast of supporting characters are marvelous and they live and breathe on these pages.  I am glad I found this wonderful author and, while I am sorry to see this series end, I am so looking forward to the next series that she will grace us with!
