"Francine Rivers puts readers right into the history of the moment..." -- Romantic Times
"Franicine Rivers without a doubt is one of the finest storytellers of our generation. She transports the reader to another time another place with such skill that one feels every emotion, every trauma, every life. Her adventures captured me from the first page until I breathlessly closed the book in absolute awe of her God-given talent. Francine unlocks the longing in each one of us to connect to God in a deeper, life-changing way. No one reading her books will ever be the same again." -- Debbie Macomber, New York Times Best-selling Author
"The Mark of the Lion series was my first introduction to Francine Rivers, and since its introduction I've been reading everything Francine writes. Her stories are not only gripping entertainment, they are life-changing adventures. As we `watch' Hadassah and Atretes struggle through first-century trials, we learn how to handle similar situations in the twenty-first century. The `costumes' may vary, but our Victorious Lord does not change." -- Angela Hunt, Award-Winning Author of Doesn't She Look Natural
"Francine Rivers writes from her heart to touch the hearts of her readers. Her books are essential reading for all who love Christian Fiction..." -- Bodie Thoene, winner of 8 ECPA Gold Medallion Awards for Christian Fiction
"More than a dozen years ago, a bookseller urged me to read the Mark of the Lion trilogy. I devoured each novel, drawn into Hadassah's world and challenged by Hadassah's faith. Page by page, I walked the streets of Jerusalem, of Rome, of Ephesus, led by a sure hand. Not only did Francine thoroughly research her setting; she also plumbed the depths of God's Word and the desperate corners of the human heart to create a story so gripping, so spiritually and emotionally satisfying, it could only come from a pen wholly dedicated to God. In a word, Francine redefined Christian fiction--honest, unflinching, powerful, life-changing--demonstrating why storytelling is the most effective way to communicate God's truth. Every Christian novelist writing today owes a debt of gratitude to Francine Rivers for lighting the way." -- Liz Curtis Higgs, author of the best-selling Lowlands of Scotland series --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
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. From 1976 to 1985, she had a successful writing career in the general market, and her books were highly acclaimed by readers and reviewers. 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.
Francine and her husband, Rick, live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their grandchildren.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Top Customer Reviews
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)
The more vulnerable you allow yourself to be while thoughtfully reading this book, the spiritual growth you might attain will bring a sweet humility, and the desire to forgive others, as well as youself.
I have the Trilogy on my library shelves, as well as this first book on my Amazon Kindle. I am re-reading it for the 8th time.
This book however, A Voice in the Wind, is entirely different. It's shockingly fresh and current for today's generation, hits every debatable subject topic in the Christian community, nails entire audience demographics, and stays true to the life and history of 70AD. The subject matter might be too disturbing or strong for the softer audience members (not sure I'd recommend it to my mom). As far as common adult fiction goes, like the stories main character of a the humble little Jewess slave... it's a one-of-a-kind gem.
In many ways it's comparable to The Red Tent by Anita Diamant, which I also loved. Likewise, A Voice in the Wind is also complex with a broad range of various interesting characters, filled with anything-but-boring descriptions, which makes you feel like there is no stone unturned as you get to know the very people and places you are reading about. Overall, this is a very pleasant read. There is no heavy MUST READ action, but instead the solid promise that every time you pick up this book, you will be 100% satisfied and never put it down disappointed. It nags at you with a calm urgency to read it, not overbearing. A Voice in the the Wind has challenged my faith and understanding in ways that has made me a better person. It prods my thought life as a "know-it-all" person of the Christian faith, into being a humble doer that understands that sometimes our spiritual walk is more important than our spiritual talk.
Simply put: If you let it, this book can change your life.
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!
