Listener Opinions

    " Some noted in their reviews that they did not finish this book as it was so realistic. I finished the book as it IS realistic! Ancient Rome is SO similar to our United States. I am thankful for Rivers message that the only way to be truly free is through Jesus Christ. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn Le | 2/7/2014

    " Another great and inspiring novel by Francine Rivers!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mscmagee | 2/4/2014

    " Kind of like Christian Porn, glad there was another 2 books to finish the series.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rose | 2/3/2014

    " I re-read this series every couple of years! Oh to have the faith of Hadassah! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tmayoral | 1/25/2014

    " A friend recommended this book (series) after she had received the recommendation and started the first book. I'm generally warry of accepting recommendations like this but something told me to read these books. I have to admit I was not led astray by this series. I savored this book reading it only at night and then only a couple chapters at at ime. However, as the book went deeper and deeper I found that I had to finish it. As a Christian I was humbled by Hadassah, her ability to live in constant assurance of her faith, knowing she was really free, inspired me. Julia has driven me crazy with her insolence. However, I realized that she is the selfishness that inhabits every living person. She may be the extreme but every person is selfish and by writing her to this extreme allows us to look inward and try to live our lives closer to the way Hadassah lived hers. As soon as I'm finished with this series I'm passing them on to my mother. I strongly recommend this series to anyone especially those who are questioning their faith. (show less) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessi Stover | 1/23/2014

    " This is good but I hate the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet Mcmullin | 1/15/2014

    " Can't wait to pick up the second book in the series. I loved this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 1/15/2014

    " Excellent. I loved this story, for everything that it was and that it encouraged. Hadassah is one of my role models: her silent, calm obedience embodies everything that I am not, but wish I was. Her conciliation that she had faults, that she is broken, and that she needs God are inspirational; even though as an outsider, I felt that her "faults" were unfounded, she is amazing. Even the stories of the family, and Atretes were great, although Rivers fully utilizes their stories in later books. Historic, godly, and riveting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amelia Bray | 1/12/2014

    " Excellent reading! It's a story that will help you group as a Christian. It caused me to reflect on my own Christian growth. Read this and surely it will be a rewarding expierience. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krystee | 1/2/2014

    " Profound! Amazingly written. Rivers really knows how to capture an individual. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianna Townsend | 11/3/2013

    " This to goes on my favorites list. I couldn't put it down. I found myself thinking about the main character throughout my entire day and long after I finished the book. I in fact read the entire series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 9/26/2013

    " Awesome start of the trilogy set in Roman times. It gives us glimpses of what life was like for the rich and the poor and how the Lord can redeem even the darkest of sinners. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maria | 8/18/2012

    " Sigh... what can I say. I really liked the whole idea behind this book. A young christian struggling with her own faith in the face of trial. I loved this part of the story but, I felt like Francine Rivers was preaching sex more than Christianity. I had to put the book down and I was disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 6/19/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marian | 6/10/2011

    " This book was probably my all-time favorite read! It was rich with drama, but also incredibly accurate in depicting what life was like for a young Jewish girl growing up in the days of gladiators and Christian imprisonment and death. Great book and series. "
