A Voice in the Wind

So this is book #1 of a 3 book Series called “Mark of the Lion” by Francine Rivers……….
Let me tell you that all the girls in my book club have read this book series and were saying how wonderful it was and for some of them they were the best books they have read, but I was not convinced at first. It took me a month or two to go out and buy the book and dive in.
My reservations? Well it is a Christian series and usually any Christian themed book I have read is dull, preachy and uneventful and I enjoy action, love and some mystery in the books I read.
So now for my review, this book is great it is not a “Christian Book” but a fictional book set in biblical times involving Jews, Christians and non believers. I LOVE history and this book is set in Rome and has alot to do with Gladiators and it is very intriguing and as I read it I was transported to that time in history and the book played out in my head like a movie. This book is also about God’s love and how you can show his love to others just by your actions. The author did a ton of research on this time period, their customs and how they lived their lives and frankly I was shocked! This book seems to deal with modern day issue’s but the characters are just wearing different clothing. I rushed out to buy Book # 2 and I will start it today so I do recommend this book to anyone! So you know it is confusing at first with all the biblical names and the introduction of the characters but soon enough I had everyone straight! So I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars!!!!
Ps……….My Kindle 2.0 will be here NEXT WEEK!!!!!
