Nothing less than 5 Stars for this beauty!
This is such a breathtaking story--so honest and hopeful and humbling. A Voice in The Wind is a Christian Fiction with religious themes that are heavily pronounced. There's no way around them. Religious beliefs, customs, biblical analysis, and Christian t...

I previously dispassionately st...

I read this book back in 2003 and LOVED it. It was possibly one of the best books I have ever read. I never got around to reading the next two in the series, so I am re-reading it now, so that I can continue with the series.

This story follows Hadassah, a Judean Christian brought to Rome after the fall of Jerusalem, Marcus and Julia, two young Roman citizens, and Atretes, a German warrior and chieftain defeated in battle and brought to Rome as a gladiator.
The good: This book was head and shoulders above any other Chr...
