On This Foundation is the third book in the Restoration Charonicles. The author, Lynn Austin, does an awesome job when writing a fictional book based on the Bible. This book covers the story of Nehemiah and the rebuilding of the Jerusalem wall.
If I did not need to sleep, I would not have put this book down once. Even then, I started back up in the morning. This book transports the reader to this Biblical time and the characters are alive. They almost made me feel like I was a fly on the wall.
As with her other books, Austin does not paint perfect characters. Just as we all are flawed, so are the characters in the story, even through he is a powerful and influential man.
I highly recommend this book and even though it is the third in the series, it easily stands alone.
I was given this book by bookfun.org and Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
