Publisher's Summary

Francine Rivers, a winner of the ECPA Gold Medallion, is a best-selling author of Christian fiction. A Voice in the Wind takes listeners into a richly imagined ancient Rome in the midst of its great decline. This heart-stirring tale of a young slave girl, torn between her love for a handsome aristocrat and her faith in God, transcends genres with its awe-inspiring power and emotional intensity.

Favourite book of all time!

Amazing! I have read this book multiple times, and each time I find myself still glued just as easily. Uplifting in faith!

I love this author!

Francine Rivers is my favourite author. I love that someone can read to me!
Audible is a fantastic opportunity to listen to the books I enjoy and still have freedom to do other things. It especially entertaining while driving! Thank you!

Best series I’ve ever read!

Mark of the lion series is so well written. When I read it,the imagery made me feel like I was in ancient times. Hadassah’s journey is so inspiring and encouraging I can’t say enough about how good this series is

The BEST

Francine character builds like NO one else. You feel like you know each of them personally. This is a book you can read or listen to again and again. It never gets old.

The Story Not The Narrator

I listened to the sample of this and almost wasn't willing to purchase it because I could tell I didnt like the narrator. Mispronunciation, tone, and his voice overall were a challenge but I decided being able to listen to this incredible story while I work was worth it. It is, though I think it would be so much better read by someone else.

Didn't see that coming!

As a born again Christian, l understand the scriptures quoted and the quest of that author. However, for someone that knows nothing about what Christianity is or what that life entails, it can be very hard to find that hope in this book. It seems, to the non-believer, that Hadassah's life has been in vain. I think the epilogue should have clarified that even though we do have to go through physical death, our spirits live on in eternity with our Lord and Savior, thus giving Hadassa's life meaning. Hers was a life of service in devotion to her Lord that ended up in her dying for Him.
I like the narrator's voice and the overall performance.

Never thought I would enjoy a Christian Novel

I have read other books from Francine Rivers. But they were not Christian themed. This book was recommended to me years ago, but kept putting it off because I wasn’t sure if I would like it. I joined Audible free trial and figured now is the chance to finally bite the bullet ! And so glad I did ! It did take a bit to get into the story. And get used to listening instead of reading. I will say the word sardonic gets used way to much ! :)
