I have to be honest, when I read this book I was quite relieved that it wasn’t going to be another typical “love story.” The main character, Susan Mitchell, is a soccer mom and is happily married. I hoped that it would be full of adventure for the Lord, and I wasn’t disappointed! Just when I began to figure things out in this new world, which is always a little tough with fantasies, Sharon Hinck threw in a twist that I didn’t see coming. It is a great story. And even though it is about a married women, I think teens will really enjoy it too!
Don’t forget to check out the second and third book of this series, “The Sword of Lyric”: The Restorer’s Son, and The Restorer’s Journey.
From the Publisher:
Susan Mitchell sees herself as an ordinary soccer mom, until she’s pulled through a portal into another world, where a nation grappling for its soul waits for a promised Restorer to save their people. She has always longed to do something important for God, but can she fill this role? While she struggles to adapt to a foreign culture, she tackles an enemy that is poisoning the minds of the people, uncovers a corrupt ruling Council, and learns that God can use even her floundering attempts at service in surprising ways. This new expanded edition of The Restorer includes an in-depth devotion guide for readers who want to dig into the spiritual themes of the book, bonus scenes providing glimpses of the story through a variety of characters, and fun extras including links to songs and recipes.
