Christ Jesus Lives!
I can't seem to come up with a title witch which to compare this novel and its prequel. It stands out to me singularly with its ability to mirror human life and suffering and love and also bring light to the truths of the God of Abraham. What a beautifully written story and passionate beyond my heart's ability to hold. Just wonderful..
I truly enjoyed Richard's performance and thought him to be incredibly capable of using different voices consistently and accurately. What a talented man!
Oh I laughed! oh I cried! I sobbed and curled in a ball and wept with Julia and Marcus and Hadasa. I'm overwhelmed!
I'm such a fan of this author and so excited that there are other novels for me to enjoy. I can't wait to delve in more to the great stories ahead of me! Thank you so much for this experience!
I thoroughly enjoyed both "A Voice in the Wind" (book1) and "An Echo in the Darkness" (book 2). You'll not want to stop listening and be prepared for some tears. As well as learning a few humbling & moral lessons (something we can ALL use). Unfortunately I found "Sure as the Dawn" (book 3) monotonous and unnecessarily long. Actually shouting "get on with it already!" a time or two. That being said, this would be a wonderful book-to-screen event.
I couldn't stop listening! Francine had me on the edge of my seat the entire book. I wept and laughed and at times was shocked along with the characters. I came away wanting a deeper relationship with God. Thank you, Francine!
I first fell in love with this book series over 15 years ago. This is the first time listening to it though and it is just as awesome as I remembered. Everyone needs to read this series.
The second book in the series was a good as the first. It picked up right where the 1st on stopped and captured my attention from the beginning. Francine Rivers is an excellent Christian fiction writer!
