The Mark of the Lion Series novels are three of my top five favorite reads. Francine Rivers transports you to Rome in this first book of the series, A Voice in the Wind. I originally read the series over 10 years ago and re-read it, loving it every much if not more than the first time. Although the book is slightly over 500 pages, I found myself reading this book at a very fast pace and enjoying every word. The characters are painted so vividly that you are immersed into the times and troubles of this time in history. I am generally not a fan of Christian fiction because it always seems to be so unrealistic but Francine Rivers does a remarkable job and I find myself thrilled to be a reader at every turn of the page.
SYNOPSIS by Barnes & Noble
This first book in the classic best-selling Mark of the Lion series brings readers back to the first century and introduces them to a character they will never forget—Hadassah. Torn by her love for a handsome aristocrat, a young slave girl clings to her faith in the living God for deliverance from the forces of decadent Rome.
RATING: 5 STARS! Amazing!!!
