Returning (A Seer Novel #3)

Title:  Retuning (A Seer Novel #3)
Author:  Rachelle Dekker
Pages:  432
Year:  2017
Publisher:  Tyndale
My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This series begins with the first novel titled, Choosing, that is followed by Calling and then this final novel that takes place twenty years after the end of Calling.  At first, I was concerned that if so much time elapsed in the story would I be able to pick up the book and be able to follow the plot or characters?  Undoubtedly, the answer is yes!  Rachelle Dekker does a fantastic job of reminding readers of some past actions, adventures and who the main characters were before leading us on the final adventure of the series.
I found myself remembering Carrington, Remko, Jesse, Elsie, and others and understanding their current living situation.  More importantly is where their hearts and souls are abiding, either in fear or in the light of the truth that the Father shows.  At times, I felt my heart as gripped as a mother like Carrington as she longed to know what happened to her and Remko’s firstborn who was stolen from them so long ago.  I easily was caught up not just in the action but in wondering above all what is the spiritual truth being reflected in this work of fiction.
For me, I see where people all have a choice of where to allow their hearts and souls to dwell, either in the hand of the Father or not.  I understood the spiritual warfare that was reflected throughout all three books as well as the human heart factor that can at times mess up our understanding of spiritual truths.   The love of God is another truth I believe woven in the books and the need for us to constantly be reminded of to Whom we belong and the truth He speaks.
All three books are interdependent and I can’t see reading one book without having read the others.  The climactic conclusion was extremely powerful, moving and beautiful.  As always I think it is hard to end a series for both the author and readers who become so engrossed with the story that we want it to keep going.  However, if one must complete a series, this was a beautiful picture of how it should end.  These novels are great for reading, discussing and sharing with others!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
