Library Journal Review

Dr. Lisbeth Hastings lives a complicated life. Forced to leave the only man she ever loved in another time period than her own, her existence now revolves around her daughter and her work. Cyprian Thascius has lost everything that was ever important to him. Trying to rebuild his life in Roman Carthage without Lisbeth is akin to trying to breathe without air. But then suddenly, she reappears, fighting an epidemic that could change everything. Will Lisbeth and Cyprian be able to work through their differences and find their way back to each other? Gentry follows up Healer of Carthage with this poignantly written narrative full of vivid imagery and historical detail. Fans will want to see where Lisbeth's time-traveling adventures take her next; familiarity with the first installment is a must. VERDICT Romance, persecution, political upset-this novel has it all and fans of Julie Klassen, Tessa Afshar, and Tracy L. Higley will be intrigued by Gentry's similar writing style.-Shondra Brown, Wakarusa P.L., IN (c) Copyright 2015. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
