A Voice in the Wind book.

Mark of the Lion series. Francine Rivers puts readers right into the history of the moment. Chapter 1. The city was silently bloating in the hot sun, rotting like the thousands of bodies that lay where they had fallen in street battles

Mark of the Lion series. The city was silently bloating in the hot sun, rotting like the thousands of bodies that lay where they had fallen in street battles. An oppressive, hot wind blew from the southeast, carrying with it the putrefying stench of decay. And outside the city walls, Death itself waited in the persons of Titus, son of Vespasian, and sixty thousand legionnaires who were anxious to gut the city of God.

Francine Rivers began her literary career at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and journalism. Although raised in a religious home, Francine did not truly encounter Christ until later in life, when she was already a wife, a mother of three, and an established romance novelist.

Book 1 of 3 in the Mark of the Lion Series. A Voice in The Wind, is set in a very bloody time period, so this book is not meant for the squeamish. However, Rivers does historical fiction with class; telling the story without dwelling on the violence. But the reason you read this story is because of a little girl named Hadassah.

The first book in the beloved Mark of the Lion series by the New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love, A Voice in the Wind brings readers back to the first century and introduces them to a character they will never forget-Hadassah. While wealthy Roman citizens indulge their every whim, Jews and barbarians are bought and sold as slaves and gladiators in the bloodthirsty arena. Amid the depravity around her, a young Jewish slave girl becomes a light in the darkness.

Francine Rivers does a fantastic job writing absorbing stories with accurate history I loved the Mark of the Lion series (3 books)

Francine Rivers does a fantastic job writing absorbing stories with accurate history. When I read her books, I learn a lot of history as her characters live it. I loved the Mark of the Lion series (3 books). The story opens in Jerusalem in the year 70 AD, with the Roman general Titus laying siege to Jerusalem and destroying it. The story follows a young Christian teenager as her family is slaughtered and she is carried into a life of slavery in Rome. The first 4 chapters or so are very violent and graphic, with people being burned, raped and pillaged, so it is tough going at first.

This classic series has inspired nearly 2 million readers. Both loyal fans and new readers will want the latest edition of this beloved series. This edition includes a foreword from the publisher, a preface from Francine Rivers and discussion questions suitable for personal and group use. #1 A Voice in the Wind: 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.
How surprised I was, reading my first book by Francine Rivers. I didn’t expect a book about faith in Jesus Christ. A book about early Christianity. I followed all the characters easily and almost felt like I was hovering overhead watching what was unfolding. I read the book along with the narrative. I love how he read it, but I did speed it up to 1.25 as the book got more and more exciting, I couldn’t wait to get to the next chapter to see what would happen next. I really enjoyed this book and right now I’m going to start the next in the series!
I sensed a faint presence of an all-knowing, all-present God in the midst of the multi-faced evils of the great deceiver. It was a-bit draining to spend much of this first episode with Julia (and her selfish-loves), Marcus, their parents, and Attretus, all 'faithful' followers of other gods. So much time and story line was spent on these characters that I wondered if Haddasah would ever have support in her faith. The climax left me wondering, 'Is this the end of the faithful servant Haddasah!' I guess I'll have to find out in the sequel.
Francine is one of my favorite authors. She has the ability to draw me and make me feel like I am IN the story.

This book, in particular, is my very favorite. Such a deep, thought provoking story that leaves you breathless (literally). It is NOT recommended that you finish this book without the second one readily available.

A classic book I will read again and again for the rest of my life!
Definitely a thought provoking read. Set in the Roman era during the persecution of the early church by Nero this is the story of a young slave girl Hadassah who struggles with her faith. After being sold to a Roman family, she serves their daughter Julia, a selfish, lustful 14 year old. As I read this book, I was engrossed in Hadassah's struggles with her faith, love for God, and courage to stand strong.

Francine Rivers writes of the lust of women and men, the quest for money and power, and brutality that humans have inflicted on each other in pursuit of the same. Because of the detailed descriptions of some scenes during the Roman games and touching on subjects of abortion and homosexuality, be forewarned. (Review by M. Struse)
This book series has blessed my life for so many years now. I have read all 3 at least a dozen times, and each time I glean something new and moving. Francine Rivers is an outstanding author, who truly does her research and takes time choosing her words. The moments occurring in this story are hard to read in the most beautiful way; they pain the heart with truth and reality, moving you deeply over and over again. The characters are so beautifully real, I feel I know them very personally. I recommend this book to male or female, Christian or not. My one warning is that there is most definitely mature historical content, so be cautious for younger readers.
But then when your grow a little older- read it!
This was a very enjoyable book, and I look forward to reading the next two in the series. I've learned so much about Roman society and gladiators. The research into everyday life, from what their homes looked like to what they ate, made the story come alive. I was especially interested in what the arena games were all about. I learned how gladiators trained, what their weapons and attire were called and the types of gladiators that fought. At times, when the book seemed brutal, I had to remember how brutal these historical times were. Life was cheap entertainment for the masses if you were a slave or a prisoner. Through the book, I loved seeing what life might have been like for a survivor of the Roman invasion of Jerusalem - in particular, a Christian Jew.. What the character Hadassah endures, might very well have happened. Her faith sees her through many trials. We learn what faithfulness and long suffering are all about by watching her. She is indeed the humble heroine of this novel.
Excellent book! This book takes you right back to the center of history shortly after the resurrection of Christ. Rivers puts bible history in a context that you visualize and remember. It makes it fun to read the bible. When you sit down to read Paul's letters for example, where he warns about the temples and the false gods, Rivers has taken you on a journey through the temples in several cities and you witness the destruction of many lives of those who believe in these false gods, so you understand what Paul is talking about. You have a better bite of history to grasp what he is teaching you.

And Hadassah, if we could all be like her, trusting God, even in the hard times. I love the example Rivers has given us here, not throwing Christianity in the reader's face, but perfectly illustrating who Christ is. Rivers gives us a lovely character in Hadassah. She quietly faces all that comes at her: death, life, persecution, illness, even love, with a bold strength. Knowing she is covered by the blood of Christ and she is never alone.

If you are looking for a way to get excited about reading the bible, Rivers presents a visual launching pad. A Voice in The Wind, is set in a very bloody time period, so this book is not meant for the squeamish. However, Rivers does historical fiction with class; telling the story without dwelling on the violence.

But the reason you read this story is because of a little girl named Hadassah. She vaults herself beyond it all. It is because of Hadassah that I recommend this book to all. You will read this book more than once. Read it. Allow it to inspire you as it did me. And buy it for someone else to enjoy. May we all be able to have the faith and strength of Hadassah in the world ahead.
