This is an excellent book - as are all in the series. Compelling, highly descriptive, historically convincing, and emotionally stirring. In my opinion, the books in this series are the best the author has written.
This is a very good book that does not need to follow the first two of the trilogy. I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first two books. Francine rivers is a fantastic writer. She brings you into the scene through her descriptive words. I love her.
I wondered what had happened to Atretes and here is a whole book all about him!! Great story and could be read all by it's self in you haven't read the first ones but would be better knowing the back story. Wonderful story, I loved it altho I liked the first two better but the ending was awesome!! Great book about God's faithfulness in our lives. Great Story!!

As with all of her books, Francine Rivers 'As Sure As the Dawn' will be one of my most recommended favorites.
The portrayal of her Christian characters, with their struggles against indwelling sin in lifes trials, and resultant sanctification always hit home.
Her zeal for God comes through vibrantly in each of her books I have read, and is always inspiring.
Loved it - the entire series was excellent. I've since shared my copies w/friends... I will keep this trilogy on my bookshelf. (I mistakenly reposted the first book upon completion of reading it/ later requested it again and will not make that mistake again!)
