It brings the story of Hadassah's journey and faith to a complete circle and shows how much impact one meek, loving, Christian slave girl had on a very influential, wealthy, prideful and immoral family.
The powerful journey an angry Marcus took to find the God of Hadassah and upon his return, his increasing interest in 'the healer' who has attached herself to his sick sister, Julia. My heart breaks for Alexander, the doctor, whom 'the healer' helps.
Get the tissues because you should cry, as well as laugh, during this book. By far, the one I like the best. I have listened to this book and series several times.
The story- Francine River's voice.
Hadassah and Marcus of course!
Possibly-I'm not a fan of books made into movies.
I didn't enjoy the narrator while listening to A Voice In the Wind but gave him another try. I should have saved my time and money. I didn't enjoy it any more the second time. I'm not going to listen to As Sure as the Dawn.
Awesome, thought-provoking, deep
I experienced emotions I wouldn't have if I was just reading.

This second book was even better than the first, for this is the book where all of the pieces fell into place and end-result was nothing less than a true masterpiece.
This book will make you laugh, feel anxious, cry and praise God - all in one or two sittings!
#2 as with 'The Voice In The Wind' at #1
Markus was my favorite character as he struggled with the pain of loss and a dire need to understand why God was more important to Hadassa than her own life. Why had God Forsake her, Markus had to know, thus his quest began.
He was Awesome, giving each character their own voice. A voice I could listen to for hours,
Can't hear you....I'm reading!!
The whole book moved me.
What an awesome follow-up to The Voice in the Wind. I love that this is a christian fiction and that it does not hide away from real situations. It is not a feel good, happy every after type of book. It is raw, without being vulgar. It is passion, without being explicit. It is real, without being offensive. It is so descriptive of the characters that you can't help but to love them, hate them, cry for them and cheer for them! Wow! Thank God for saving Francine Rivers! We finally got something worth reading!
I love reading....I love the fantasy a good book can give you, how it traps you in another world, and the bitter sweet feeling you get when its over.
christian love story
When Hadasa gains the courage to stand for Jesus no matter what.
He has a way of getting into every character's own self so you don't have to guess who he is talking about. He does great with a wide variety of emotions.
Oh, yes....The very end...was extremely sad but made me rush to get the second book (Don't want to give anything away:) ).
Loved it, it cuts straight to the heart.
This book series is perfect for audio because of the history and language used. Having someone else pronounce peoples names and places made it much more interesting.
I loved the fact that the characters point to Christ, while still struggling with the pain and deception of society and man's own heart. I read it in three days!
Hadassah. Her sacrificial life resonated with me, and rang true despite logic
With the exception of the ending (which I found was quite unnecessary), this book was incredible, well worth the credit!
