A Voice in the Wind

A Voice in the Wind is the first book in the Mark of the Lions Series by Francine Rivers.  Hadassah is the lone survivor of her family during the siege and destruction of Jerusalem and is sent to Rome as a slave.  She is placed in service to a wealthy merchant’s daughter Julia.  As she tries to keep Julia from destroying herself and everyone around her Hadassah is exposed to every sin imaginable and clings to her faith.  As she tries to help Julia find her way she desperately tries to distance herself from Marcus, Julia’s older brother.  Marcus has a hold on her heart that will never be realized.  From gladiators to aristocrats, Hadassah impacts many lives, but what would the cost be if anyone discovers her to be a Christian?

This is my first Francine Rivers novel and I couldn’t read it fast enough.  Rivers takes an incredible part of Christian history and weaves into an epic novel that shows the brutality and persecution that the early church faced.  Yet the more difficult the journey became for Hadassah the stronger her faith grew in the Lord.  I was shocked, saddened, intrigued, and impacted by Hadassah’s story and look forward to the next installment of this series.  If you like history, read this book.  If you like romance read this book.  If you like Christian fiction, READ THIS BOOK!
