5 StarsCouldn't Put It Down!
I finally started this series after several months of my sister-in-law telling me how wonderful it was. I am usually not a fan of historical fiction, so I didn't expect to enjoy it, but within a few pages I was completely hooked. Francine Rivers has an absolutely incredible gift for writing compelling, heart-wrenching, achingly beautiful fiction, and that gift shines through in this series. "A Voice in the Wind" introduces the reader to Hadassah, a young girl who, against all odds, survives the destruction of Jerusalem. When she is sold as a slave to a wealthy family in Rome, her faith is tested in ways she never could have imagined. Hadassah is a godly protagonist that the reader can truly root for, and I found that her unwavering faith deeply challenged my own walk with the Lord - a worthy feat for a work of fiction! The amount of historical research Ms. Rivers' must have put into the production of this book is astounding. She paints a vivid portrait of Rome that is both compelling and disturbing. I would warn parents that this series is definitely not for young readers - the content is very mature and includes violence, sexuality, homosexuality, paganism, and mysticism. However, these difficult topics are handled maturely and respectfully, never gratuitously - and they are included because these were major issues in the days of the Roman Empire. I would argue that this series would be a fantastic educational supplement for older teens who are studying the Roman Empire, but parents will probably want to read it first. It is a very long book and deals with some disturbing issues, but overall it is beautifully written, spiritually challenging, and a pleasure to read. Be prepared for a major cliffhanger - I finished this book at 10:00 on a Friday night and left to get the sequel first thing Saturday morning!
