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)
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.
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!
