I didn't realize that this book is considered "Christian" fiction until I started reading it. Although faith is the essential theme of the book, the historical content alone is enough to enchant any reader. Very well written and the characters are riveting. This book is the first of the "Mark of the Lion" series.
this book was absolutely amazing. I couldn't put it down! I fell in love with the characters and through them, God has shown me about what kind of faith He requires of us. I highly recommend this series!!
This is the first in a series of three. This was a great story and gives a person a look at life in Rome at this time along with what it was like for Christians at this time to Be Christains. It's eerily similar to America today, and makes you think. Hadassah is a wonderful character and is a great example of what a Christian should be, it's a wonderful story and you won't be able to wait to read the next one so go ahead and get it too!!!!
Book 1 in he Mark of the Lion Series. I have never started a series and gotten so quickly caught up in hte impeccable history, intense story line, and wonderfully detailed characters. Hadassah is a woman for all seasons and times as she represents Christianity amid the dangerous and decadent Roman Empire. And there are 2 books to go. Don't deprive yourself-I read this straight through!
Francine Rivers takes you back in time ... to the Roman empire. The book of Christian fiction runs more than 500 pages, but will keep you entranced from beginning to end.
