I have a voracious appetite for books. My interest in them ranges from anything from Canterbury Tales to Pride and Prejudice, from Philippa Gregory to V.C. Andrews to Sidney Sheldon . I have even read a few good romance and urban romance novels by Virginia Henley, Trista Russell, and Noire. A few years ago a cousin of mine recommended that I read A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers. I was familiar with her work, having previously read The Scarlett Thread 'another fine book by the lady'. Anyway, the next day, I went out and bought the book. From the moment I picked it up, I could not put it down. Never have you read, a book that so transports you to the time and place in which it is written or that is so alive and vivid and the characters so real that you feel you know them. I finished this book in a day and a half and the next day I went out and got the second part. When I finished that book, I was so disappointed. Not because it was a bad story but because it had ended. I wanted it to go on. Finally, I bought the last book, and I absolutely fell in love with the character Theophilius. Since getting these books I have read them time and time again, as well as added her other books to my collection. Simply put, I love them. Mrs Rivers is a gifted Christian writer with a unique talent of being able to write a book about God's love without neither watering it down nor making the reader feel condemned. And, at the same time you learn so much from them historically and spiritually. There is action and adventure yet no senseless violence, and it is romantic enough to enthrall the reader without the use of smut or too much unneeded description and imagery. Mrs Rivers is truly a great writer who produces great works. Hopefully, there will be many more to come.

Thess books are great because they are fiction, but based on Biblical truths. The story is a must read for anyone wanting to understand the persecution of Christians and the faith in Christ that guided their life.

I have just finished a Voice in the Wind and am amazed. I had already read Redeeming Love by this author and read A Voice in the Wind by a friend's suggestion. As always, amazing! The ending had me almost in tears, and I can't wait to get the next one!!! Rivers writes in an engaging and expressive style while not spending to long on dreary descriptions and yet giving just enough that you feel you are there in the story. Her insight into characters gives you an insight into yourself and they seem to speak not to just the characters in the story but to you yourself the reader. A thrilling and engaging work, Bravo!

I positively adore this whole series! I own all of the books in both hardback and e-book so I can read them wherever I am. It just feels so real and Powerful you can't help but feel everything the characters feel along the way. Not to mention Rivers skill in portraying the truth of Christ as well as the turmoil of living without Him. This is a serious I will read over and over again!

Full of adventure and excitement! It had me on the edge of my seat the whole time! Made me laugh, bite my nails, angry, happy, reverence, and even cry like a baby! Even though it's fictional characters their walk with God feels so real and relatable! "That still small voice " imprinted on my heart

This is a must read book. (kind of like an historical fiction) The gospel is woven into the book beautifully. She makes you fall in love with the characters and of course detest the bad guys. Francine Rivers is an amazing writer! I've also read Redeeming Love and it was incredible - this book is just as good - maybe even better!

This is my all-time favourite series. Romantic and thought-provoking. I was left weeping after the first book in the series (which I finished in one sitting despite the length) and then flew through the second two. I've read the series several times since them. The characters are wonderfully flawed, their situations vividly realistic. Truths about God's love and forgiveness are in every page. Haven't read anything as powerful before or after. Great series.

I love this series.  I discovered Francine Rivers Mark of the Lion Trilogy at the perfect time in my life. The character, Hadassah, made a lasting and enduring mark on my life.  I am so thankful for this series and the hard work the author put  into the historical detail and Christian characters.  God worked mightily in my life through this series, and I will be forever thankful that Francine Rivers  wrote this series.  God has used this work to make a difference in my life for all time.  I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good book about a wonderful, Christian fictional character.

This is the most interesting and inspiring book I have read. I don't want to put it down and am sure I will re-read in the future. I call it a Biblical Fiction based on Early Rome with many biblical phrases and quotes. I call it a must!

My family and I read these books years ago and talked about them all the time and still do. The books that Francine Rivers writes are life changers. I have been changed from her body of work. She is one of my favorite authors. I just wish there were more books from her. Great great author. Kudos.
