I can’t believe it’s time to say goodbye to these special characters that I’ve come to know and love! The only consolation I have is that this fantastic series has a special place on my keeper shelf, and I can revisit third-century Carthage again and again.
Valley of Decision is a sensational conclusion to the Carthage Chronicles! Once again, Lynne Gentry deftly weaves past and present together and brings to life the history, drama, and romance of this extraordinary story. Full of heart-wrenching emotion and poignant truths, this story of faith and family will leave you breathless!
I absolutely loved the Carthage Chronicles and can’t wait to experience this incredible author’s next adventure!
Well, as the saying goes, "all good things must come to an end." And this is the case with Lynne Gentry's Carthage Chronicles trilogy. The storyline in books 1&2 were so exciting that it was hard to wait for the release of the third, and unfortunately last, book in this series. Lynne did not disappoint with picking back up with the story and carrying us deeper into the character's lives. I was so truly invested in the characters that I didn't want the book to end! Lynne's writing style is captivating and makes it so easy to imagine and feel what her characters are experiencing. I am truly sad that this trilogy has come to an end, but I just have to hope that Lynne will continue to excite us and spur us on to think deeply about things as she continues to publish other books!
This was a heartbreaking conclusion, but I don't see how it could have been any other way. Lynne Gentry captured my attention from the first chapter of the first book and held it all the way through the book study questions of the final book--I didn't want it to end so I read through every word :)! This trilogy was well-written, well planned, and well researched. Go ahead and buy the three books at the same time because you won't want to wait after you finish each book! The fictional characters were brought to life so well that they'll be in my thoughts for a long time! I can picture each character and setting as if I had photos to view.
From the beginning of this series, I couldn't put it down. The characters were captivating and each book left me in suspense of what was to come. A glimpse into the reality of what history held along with the challenge of taking a stand fir Christ. May I share the love that was held between these characters and their faith in the One True God.
This was such a good conclusion for the series! I loved every single book in it. In my opinion you should start with the first and read all of them in order. I loved how Maggie grew from the second book to this one. You really see her parents in her.
I thoroughly enjoyed this final book! It was fast paced and I found myself enjoying the historical research that sparked the story. The combination of suspense, history, love and Biblical connections was great!
