    "Wow"

    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.

    "Sweet Story for Girls"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of An Echo in the Darkness?

    The theme of God's forgiveness permeates.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Just When You Thought It Couldnt Get Better"

    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!

    Story
    "The Struggle Within Ourselves"
    Where does An Echo in the Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    #2 as with 'The Voice In The Wind' at #1


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    He was Awesome, giving each character their own voice. A voice I could listen to for hours,

    "And that's what you call Christian Fiction!"
    What made the experience of listening to An Echo in the Darkness the most enjoyable?

    Everything!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book moved me.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "GREAT SERIES"
    If you could sum up An Echo in the Darkness in three words, what would they be?

    christian love story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of An Echo in the Darkness?

    When Hadasa gains the courage to stand for Jesus no matter what.


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Oh, yes....The very end...was extremely sad but made me rush to get the second book (Don't want to give anything away:) ).

    Where does An Echo in the Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Loved it, it cuts straight to the heart.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
