Valley of Decision (Review)
This review is for the book "Valley of Decision" by Lynne Gentry. This is the third book in the series called The Carthage Chronicles.
In this book, Lisbeth and her father have to travel back in time to the city of Carthage and the middle of the third century. They would not go unless there was a very good reason. The reason was that Lisbeth's daughter, Maggie, had found the secret time traveling cave, and had set out on a quest to change history.
Maggie's father, Cyprian, and grandmother, Magdalena, were still in third-century Carthage. When Maggie returns, Magdalena has just been accused of killing a man who is in high power, so she is jailed and beaten while she awaits trial.
Honestly, I'm sure this is a great series. Coming into the third book was tough because I never could wrap my head around the history of the characters. Lisbeth and Cyprian are obviously still in love, but for some reason he's living in the third-century and she in the 20th. I kept getting one or two of the characters confused, maybe just because I was coming in on the third book.
I did feel that it was well written, and the book was full of romance and adventure.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
