Keepers of the Covenant is the second in Lynn Austin's Restoration Chronicles series. Biblical based fiction has never been more exciting. Reading these novels is like stepping back in time and meeting the characters that we've read about and learned about all of our lives.
In this ample novel (475 pages!) we follow Ezra as he leads the Jewish people. I really enjoyed watching the story of Esther unfold from the perspective of a Jew in the land and in the sights of persecution and facing death.
If you aren't familiar with Lynn Austin (one of my favorite authors in Christian fiction), this series might be a good place for you to start. Reading the Bible in the form of a story really helps you understand it and watching how God orchestrates through time is fascinating.
