Francine Rivers is a wonderful storyteller and she draws you into a very realistic, historical view of life in first century Rome. The story of Hadassah's faithfulness to her Lord, in spite of everything that happened to her, and Marcus's search for God will change the hearts of everyone who reads it. I couldn't stop reading it, couldn't wait to get the next one and my friends say the same thing! It touched my soul, and I will never forget this story. I wanted more after reading it!
Hard to believe but his sequel to Voice in the Wind is even more exciting. You are immediately drawn into the Roman and Hebrew cultures and anxiously read every page to know what happens to Hadassah, Marcus, and the others. Wonderfully written. I devoured it! Hadassah is my literary heroine! Rita Award winner.
If you read the first book in this series, you'll be anxious to get this one and continue the journey. You'll not be sorry you read this one.
This is the second in the series and what a series it is!! Francine has quickly become my favorite author! I devoured this story to see what would happen, it's a wonderful story of Christian faith, hope and the search of Marcus for God is a picture of all of us looking for what's right there in reach of us all. Hadassah is a wonderful heroine, and in spite of all that's happened to her she continues to serve God and is a picture of what Faith really is!! GREAT BOOK!!!
The Mark of the Lion series was so good I would give it ten stars if there were that many. I am so grateful I discovered this author. All my years in church and I never learned a smidge of what I learned about Jerusalem and the history of that time like I learned from the book. Her research is phenomenal and I also really believe inspired. Many times I cried through it as she made Christ and his teachings come alive for me. She put me right back into that time and it was impossible to stop reading till all 3 books were read and now I have started on everything else Francine Rivers has written.
