About the book:
The Old Testament Comes to Thrilling Life in the Latest from Lynn Austin
In one life-changing moment, the lives of the Jewish exiles in Babylon are thrown into confusion and despair when a decree arrives from the king's palace in Susa. It calls for the annihilation of every Jewish man, woman, and child throughout the empire on the thirteenth day of Adar, in less than one year. Ezra, a quiet Jewish scholar and teacher, is suddenly called upon to lead the community as they seek God for a reason for this catastrophe. When a second decree arrives, authorizing them to fight back, Ezra is thrust into the role of military leader as they defend themselves against their enemies.
When the battles come to an end, Ezra's brother Jude is dead and Ezra is required by the Law he so diligently studies to marry Jude's widow, Devorah, and provide an heir. Fatherhood changes Ezra, and he asks God to make a way for him and the other exiles to leave Babylon for good and return to Jerusalem. His prayers are answered and the exiles move to Judea to revitalize worship at the temple---but the fight to keep God's Law is never easy. As more and more of his community are tempted, a new battle emerges . . . this one for the survival of God's covenant and the souls of His chosen faithful.

About the Author:

"Keepers of the Covenant" is the 2nd book in Lynn Austin's Restoration Chronicles and it is a great continuation of the story. Lynn is an incredible writer and storyteller. The Old Testament can be difficult to read at times and to really get into the stories; however this is not the case with Lynn's portrayal of this time period. Personally, I have never really been able to get into the books of Ezra and Nehemiah and after this book (and the first one in the series) I have really gotten into the stories and characters. This book shares such an important piece of Jewish history and timeless truths.
If you enjoy reading Biblical fiction, then this book and series is not to miss! Written with historical detail and vivid imagery the story becomes alive and it feels as if the reader is right there in the midst of the story and action.
