About the book:
Valley of Decision
(Howard, September 2015)

Every choice has a consequence in the explosive conclusion to the Carthage Chronicles as Lisbeth returns to third-century Carthage for a thrilling final adventure.

Thirteen years ago, Lisbeth made an impossible decision---leave third-century Carthage and her husband Cyprian behind for good. She knew it was to protect her daughter Maggie, so Lisbeth gathered the strength to move on with her life.

All these years, Lisbeth has thrown herself into her work and raising her headstrong daughter, all to live up to the promise she made to Cyprian. But Maggie is sick of being protected. In an act of teenage rebellion Maggie decides to do what her mother can't---secretly returning to the third century on a quest to bring her father back, leaving Lisbeth no choice but to follow.

With Maggie's surprise arrival in Carthage, chaos ensues. She finds her grandmother on trial for murder and attempts to save her, but instead the diversion sparks a riot that nearly destroys the plagued city. Only one thing will appease the wrath of the new proconsul of Carthage: the death of the instigator.

Will Lisbeth arrive in time to save her daughter from the clutches of Rome? How can God possibly redeem such a slew of unwise decisions and deep regrets? Filled with heart-wrenching twists and riveting action, Valley of Decision brings the romantic adventure epic, The Carthage Chronicles, to an electrifying conclusion.

My Review:
"Valley of Decision" is the exciting and satisfying conclusion to Lynne's Carthage Chronicles series.  Lisbeth made a difficult decision thirteen years ago in order to protect her daughter.  However, now that her daughter has found out about her father and her parents' past, she is secretly setting out on her own path.  Maggie is off at college and then Lisbeth gets the call that she is not actually there.  The day Maggie turns eighteen, a plane ticket is charged. I loved the fast-paced action of this book and the way that it was so easy to switch back and forth between characters, settings and events.   This book is filled with twists and travel between centuries and the theme that shines through is that every choice that anyone makes has consequences.  The drama, suspense and romance interwoven throughout this story draws the reader right into the book and holds you captive until the very end.
