    "Still a difficult read, still worth it"

    A perfect sequal to A Voice in the Wind. Again, I had difficulty with the aggressiveness of Christian beliefs being presented as the proper and only beliefs, but nonetheless it was a beautiful read for insight into early christianity. The only flaw I hold to this book is the grand overuse of the word 'sardonically'. Once again, I recommend this book to anyone with an open mind.

    Story
    "Echo in the Darkness"
    Would you listen to An Echo in the Darkness again? Why?

    Yes. A great book of love and redemption. Hadassah's love was Christ manifested. It showed me 'up-close-and-personal' God great love towards His people.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved Julia Valerian's transformation. I recall so vividly how much I couldn't stand her then, my heart melted deeply where I overjoyed by God's hand at work.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hadessah's experience in the arena.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listen to all three books (a voice in the wind, echo in the darkness and as sure as the dawn) and found love, mercy, grace, patience, and forgiveness at a whole new level. Hadessah and Rizpa took servanthood to a new level. A very impressive, powerful book. Should be recommended reading for all who say they LOVE God. These book will cause you to examine your heart. Thank you Francine Rivers; Thank you Richard Ferrone and, thank you for ALL who worked to bring these books to light. And, most of all THANK YOU LORD JESUS or using these people to spread your love. :

    "Amazing story"

    The story is well written. I love the whole trilogy, and will frequently re-read them. The narrator often mid-pronounces words, especially Hebrew names and place names. I found that particularly irritating. His performance is good but he should have researched proper pronunciations before recording this. I will read the paper copy next time instead of listening to the audible version.

    "Just wow! Amazing"

    One of the best things as a Christian is to feel conviction. There are areas in our life that we need to improve. This book helps you to see the areas in your life that needs mending. I wish to have a Hadassah faithful heart, a Phoebe servant attitude, a Julia light, and a Marcus drive.
