    1. Valley of Decision was the final book of The Carthage Chronicles Series.While I enjoyed Valley of Decision, I didn t like it nearly as much as Healer of Carthage One thing I love about historical fiction is the educational aspect I learned a great deal from the Healer of Carthage about medicine and treatments used in 3rd Century Carthage Valley of Decision didn t bring about any new learning.The story line was interesting, but predictable We knew what would happen in the end.While this particula [...]

Noooooo NOOOO Why did I have to read this I m sorry, but I have to say it, even putting it in sopiler view spoiler What kind of romance is theone where the hero DIES hide spoiler I understand it was logical and probable, but I wanted something else The story is interesting and I can see that it has been researched, since I had the feel of the old roman s time The birth of Christianity, the persecution it was all there and it was credible, but view spoiler the ending spoiled everything hide spoil [...]

    4. First off, Lynne Gentry s writing is awesome The story came to life with it The characters felt real and the setting was very convincing Each view point had its own personality and style, while all in the same author s wonderful writing The message in the story was also inspiring It s great to read a novel that is about God, about true faith in Him and the willingness to go to any lengths to do what it is He has called us to do I appreciated this a lot while reading and I admit, I cried I don t [...]

    6. Reviewed at The Power of Words bit 1MXpnrtIt s hard to talk about Valley of Decision apart from the whole Chronicles of Carthage series, for each story builds from book 1, Healer of Carthage This series is so far out of my comfort zone that it s not even funny, for I don t care for time travel or ancient Rome settings yet I enjoyed and was moved by each story While containing the entertaining elements of rich historical detail, well developed characters, passionate romance, and action adventure [...]

    9. I m going to be honest My brain is spinning while I m trying to gather enough words to write a review for this book that has left me emotionally rocked and asking difficult questions I don t even know where to begin How do I describe this story that has me reeling, trying to avoid crying for a fictional character, and replaying sections of it endeavoring to figure out where I became so attached What can I say that will do it justice I should probably note that there are two other books in this s [...]

    11. The most hardest part of getting involved in any series, is that one day is has to come to an end Sometimes you want to refrain from picking up the final book because if you have truly come to love the characters, you know this is the conclusion to their story They re not just characters in a book to you You ve come to know them, to care about them and to know what motivates them and those are the earmarks of a fine novel and an exceptional writer If you re looking for such a series, I would enc [...]

    13. Title Valley of Decision The Carthage Chronicles 3 Author Lynne GentryPages 367Year 2015Publisher HowardWow What a great trilogy of books that Lynne Gentry has written I would advise reading the books in order, beginning with The Healer of Carthage, then Return to Exile and finally ending with Valley of Decision The story continues throughout each book, so if readers don t begin with book one they will be lost as to the history of the cast of characters.Book three begins with only a day passing [...]

    16. When you read historical fiction, you run the risk of knowing how the story will turn out ahead of time simply because you know how history turned out And yet, you can t help but read the novel or series anyway because the author writes this particular version of events in such a compelling way Such is the case with The Carthage Chronicles by Lynne Gentry, a time travel romance series set in the third century A.D.The thing about Lynne Gentry is that she writes such vivid characters and settings [...]


    17. Valley of Decision is the third and final book in Lynne Gentry s Carthage Chronicles series, and is by far a very satisfying conclusion I have read the previous two books Healer of Carthage and Return to Exile , I just haven t had the chance to write my reviews for them as of yet hopefully those of you with equally busy schedules will understand my dilemma Anyway, this book was so great I loved both of the previous books like I said I ll post my reviews later so you can really get a feel for wha [...]


    18. I ve always been a sucker for a good time travel story, but Valley of Decision takes the cake Gentry has penned an amazing time travel romantic thriller and I didn t know such a thing existed The time travel premise itself is fascinating how would a modern American Christian react if plopped down in Carthage in the third century, when Christians were under severe persecution Then up the ante what if the plague is present And what if that modern American fell in love with an early Christian bisho [...]

    21. My thoughts The Carthage Chronicles comes to a wild conclusion in this great new novel from Lynne Gentry I ve read the whole series and couldn t wait for this one to arrive Of course, once it arrived I couldn t put it down Lucky for me I have understanding kids who also love to read and we had an afternoon read a thon I have to admit it didn t end the way I thought it would I m so happy with the way it ended though I had fallen in love with the characters and couldn t imagine a better ending Mag [...]


    22. This was a fascinating ending to a wonderful time travel series Maggie is incredibly stubborn and impulsive, which got on my nerves a bit She was funny, though, especially when she used phrases from the future in the past She was also incredibly brave, as she showed over and over when she rushed headlong to save someone without thinking It was interesting to see how people in the past reacted to her return since for them hardly any time had passed, but for her it had been thirteen years and she [...]


    23. Book three of Lynne Gentry s The Carthage Chronicles series, Valley of Decision was a fitting conclusion to Lisbeth and Maggie s time travel into third century Carthage There were times that I just wanted to close its covers and walk away not because the writing wasn t good or was difficult to read No, I tend to be just a tad squeamish and I didn t want to deal with events that I could see coming before the end I pushed myself to read the entire book and was thankful that the events I feared wer [...]


    24. Time travel books aren t very common on the Christian market, so this series intrigued me I bought the first and reviewed the second, enjoying both a lot and have been watching for the last book in the trilogy to come out The whole series is set in the third century in Carthage, and this third book is set when open persecution of Christians is in full swing The author brought back the same characters and suspense and drama from the other two books and spun a great ending to the series I read the [...]


    25. I have greatly enjoyed Lynne Gentry s Carthage Chronicles and I m sorry the series has come to a close Valley of Decision picks up 13 years following the events of Return to Exile at least that s how long Lisbeth and her daughter Maggie have been back in our time In Carthage, mere hours have passed, which leads to a lot of confusion when a grown up Maggie appears.Maggie, having Googled her father Cyprian, knows his fate, and she s determined to save him Lisbeth and her father follow Maggie to Ca [...]


    26. This book is both action packed and serious, with strong characters and a fascinating look at the early church.Valley of Decision is an action packed conclusion to the series With this series, Lynne has honed her own style, coupling modern characters with 3rd century ancient history One unique aspect of this blending of times is that she gets away with modern expressions to describe the scenes in Carthage like saying one of the characters racked his brain I love it Though filled with action with [...]


    27. This review is also posted on Book by Book.Though I didn t want to say goodbye to the Carthage Chronicles characters, Valley of Decision offers a conclusion that does the series justice and left me satisfied This third novel of the series picks up right where the second one ended for the third century storyline, at least and continues with plenty of drama, suspense, and romance Be sure to read Healer of Carthage and Return to Exile before Valley of Decision It s an emotional journey with familia [...]

    30. I felt like I was constantly yelling OMG MAGGIE SHUT UP I seriously felt Maggie took away from the story, like the author was trying too hard to shake things up before the final conclusion This book could ve been blown out of the water minus the petulant child that needed to be knocked unconscious for several chapters to accomplish anything of worth Lisbeth was equally annoying by not keeping her mouth shut long enough to devise a plan to save her husband and family I was very disappointed in th [...]
