I tend to shy away from novels written by women; however, I wanted this book these books to go on and on. My wife recommended this after reading it, and I was totally cought up in the story and charactors. These books also reminded me of my own faith and motivated me to be stronger.
The theme of God's forgiveness permeates.
My husband could not make it through this series, but for us ladies ... Well, the characters are not realistic, but they are lovely. The author serves us well, because she creates characters that inspire.
Very professional reader
the continued Christian message that faith in Jesus can overcome all obstacles.
The Character of Hadassa is my favorite
Wish the author woud quit using the word "SARDONIC" ...way overused.
There are several twists and turns that kept this story interesting.
I loved Richard Ferrone's reading.
Marcus was the most interesting character. This entire book and it's characters are interesting because of its history and the similarity it has with our culture today.
I can't wait to read (hear) the last book of the series. Francine Rivers is an excellent writter.
This is one of the best audible books I have heard. The Mark of the Lion series is amazing. Richard Ferrone brought the characters to life and touched my soul. I recommend this series to everyone, but especially to women because of the romance.
Centurion by L.D. Alford
Richard Ferrone is amazing with the many voices and emotions that he presented. I felt like I personally knew the characters and at times it felt like they were talking to me.
I primarily listened to it while driving to and from work and when I went to lunch. My drive time is about 20-30 minutes. Because of the book, I looked forward to the drive.
Beautiful performance and a beautiful story. One feels as if one is present in all of it. It is a powerful story of love and redemption in the midst of great evil and depravity. Gods message of truth is so clear in it throughout the story. If you have not listened to or read it I suggest you do. It will change and encourage you in light of the knowledge of the love of Christ.
Francine Rivers does an incredible job of applying the Gospel to real-life in her stories. Her characters are complex and easy to relate to. Their motives, words, and actions reflect the worst and the best of humanity, and I find a little bit of myself in each character.
While listening to this book, I felt closer to God
and was reminded of the importance of striving to stay close and grow closer.
Francine Rivers delivers another winner in my opinion. I just couldn't stop listening. I am on to the next book.
i read these books years ago. i could not put them down... again i was drawn into the audio version! an amazing work by both the author and the narrator!
