It's part 2 of the trilogy "Mark of the Lion" by Francine Rivers and is on my top ten list.
Hadassah was my favorite character. She had an incredible ability to forgive and love others in spite of their cruelty toward her. No human being could actually be as humble as she was portrayed. I was enthralled with Richard Ferrone's narration. He managed to change her voice from the sweet soft innocent girl's voice to one whose vocals cords had been almost ripped apart and damaged after her attack. It was genius because he somehow kept her esscence even though her voice is as rough as sandpaper! It's amazing to compare her voice from the first book to this one.
Richard Ferrone makes every single character distinct. My favorite was the Arab servant, Rasheed. He was fierce and wonderful to listen to. I felt the cold blooded anger in his voice. He even frightened me!
Yes. Definitely. I played it every free chance I had.
I'd recommend this audio book to anyone who loves great historical writing, depth of characters, and the lush and wonderful voice of Richard Ferrone. You should start with the first book in the trilogy, A Voice in the Wind, to really appreciate this story.
