  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bambi | 1/7/2014

    " Follow up to "A Voice in the Wind". This is a continuing story of Hadassa, a young Jewish slave in a very wicked Roman empire. It is a love story and a journey of faith and forgiveness. It was just beautiful. If you read "A Voice in the Wind" then you will have to read this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia Mills | 12/21/2013

    " This was a fantastic book and the 2nd in the Mark of Lion series. What a wonderful depiction of redemption and favor. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting a fast paced, great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 12/17/2013

    " It couldn't be better. Too lovely! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juli | 12/13/2013

    " I read the first in the series and thought it was an OK book. This one was much better. Easy, mindless reading. Love story. Gotta get the last in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jharrytexas | 12/9/2013

    " Kept me up all night reading!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Gomes | 12/9/2013

    " Wow the second book in this series was fantastic, I laughed, cried, angered and cheered. Francine Rivers is truly gifted in writing. the first book in the series was great and i rushed online to purchase the second now I am thinking about reading everything she has ever wrote. Love this "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 11/26/2013

    " more melodramatic than the first, but the end makes up for it. not quite as perfect as the first time around - still giving 5 stars for being such an inspiration. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 lindsey | 11/10/2013

    " I've learned to think like the main character, Hadassah. She's always looking to please the Lord and listen for His voice to direct her actions. It took me about a week to finish it... amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah A | 2/20/2013

    " Second book in possibly one of the world's best trilogy(s) EVER! This book, although my least favorite of the three, had by far the best ending of any book I have ever read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawna | 1/14/2013

    " Ouuuu! This was such a great resolution to the story line!! I really enjoyed this book..I might have actually read it too fast and missed some very important internal character development...Great read. Really inspiring and reminds you of the power of faith and prayer "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 9/14/2012

    " I love this series! Early Christianity in Rome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 8/18/2012

    " Even better than the first in the trilogy, Voice in the Wind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 7/23/2012

    " Highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to read about life right after Jesus' resurrection "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly Mc | 7/2/2012

    " Ok...so the writing left a lot to be desired, but the story...oh the story. God is so good and how can we deny that. Convicted of my own lake of faith and burden for the lost around me. God has definitely used Francine Rivers again to convict me of where I lack in my faith. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renae M. | 6/3/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marina | 5/21/2012

    " couldn't put it down - let the dishes pile up, kids veg in front of the tv, ate frozen pizza for 2 days - good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 3/6/2012

    " This book was as good as the first. I was very engrossed in the story and the characters. The theme throughout the book was impossible to miss: follow Jesus' example literally, be a servant to others, love selflessly and unconditionally, and forgive absolutely anything "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 3/1/2012

    " Another good one, I so recommend it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dee | 12/4/2011

    " Fairly good. Author could cut a lot out. She's repetitious. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rosie | 7/18/2011

    " Worth reading to find out what happens from the first book, but not as good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 5/10/2011

    " Really must read this book once you complete the first one in the series. It is very moving and really interesting as far as facts and Roman history!
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cara | 3/13/2011

    " After reading the first book, there's no way I could put his one down! This is book #2 and once again, the history of this time period is amazing and the author has done her research and makes you feel like you're in the book. This book just keeps getting better and is full of wonderful suprises! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 3/10/2011

    " did not enjoy this book as I did the first. Slow moving and just did not draw me in. I kept reading so I could see what would happen to Marcus and Hadassah. Not sure if I will read the 3rd book in the trilogy or not. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aimee | 3/5/2011

    " This has been a really good series. This is the second book in the series, a little more boring than the first one, but still a good read. I'm half way through the 3rd book and I have to say the 3rd book, in my opinion, is much better than the first 2. I'm excited to see how it all ends! "
