Absolutely loved this book. Lynn Austin brings the Old Testament to life in an incredible way. The picture she paints using real scripture will pierce your soul. Highly recommend.

This book is an incredible account of historical biblical fiction. With fantastic research and historical acumen, Lyyn Austin writes a breathtaking account about the Israelites returning back to Israel after the end of the Babylonian occupation. This book follows the biblical prophet Zechariah from childhood to adulthood and describes his dedication inspired by his grandfather, Iddo to rebuild the second temple. There are also a few chapters at the end where the Prophet Haggai is brought in. The character development is very deep, and I felt like I was transported back in time to experience this journey with my people.

It can be very difficult to fill in the blanks when writing historical biblical fiction, especially when the Old Testament accounts are brief with little details about surrounding circumstances. It takes a unique imagination, a lot of research, and a passionate spirit to try and write such a compelling story with accuracy. I was blown away by this book and look forward to reading others by this author.
