Marcus and Hadassah- Hadassah because to have her faith and willingness to do for others no matter what they do or how they treat you, is something only God can give to a person. Marcus-You see a rugged yet soft side to him in his protection for Hadassah. You also see the struggle that is going on in him, and have to keep reading to see what he is willing to go through to understand what drives Hadassah.
His voice was easy to listen to and he tried to make the characters come to life for you.
Captivating, Historical, Refective
Marcus, not just because he is the center of this story line, but because of his frustrations with Christianity and finally submitting to Almighty God. Haddasah's faith is inspiring.
Marcus' submission to God.
I love Judeo Christian history and this was great--very accurate from what I have studied.
This book is more in depth than "Redeeming Love." The characters are well developed and the main character, Haddasah, is believable. I couldn't stop listening! I thought it was outstanding.
The ending of this book is the true climax and you cannot wait to start the next book.
There are many scenes in this book that were extremely moving and realistic.
The ending is amazing!
If you are a Francine River's Fan, "The Mark of the Lion," is a must read!

Love this series of books. Such a fantastic picture of God's love, forgiveness, patience and peace.
Let me begin by stating I have never been a fan of the time period in this book. History buffs would stone me but I find them a hard read with the historical names and places that I have long since forgotten since my World History class in college. This book grabbed me from the very beginning. The story line was compelling and the narrator did an excellent job in the voice inflections of the characters. I do not want to give away anything in this excellent book but I can tell you, I am on the third book of the trilogy and have purchased it for my sister in hard copy to enjoy! Anyone in love with the Gospel will enjoy this tremendously!!.
Francine Rivers is an amazing author. She makes history come alive. Her knowledge of the customs, societies and times of the characters is deep and thorough. This series ' the Mark of the Lion' is truly well-written.
I did feel that the main male characters were portrayed a little too angry at times - but considering what they endured perhaps it was justifiable.
I also enjoyed the way she interwove many stories from the Bible into the books and the great truths of the Bible as well. Very good - kept me rapt for almost a month (3 books)
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.
I was educated into oblivion but have overcome it and am having a wonderful life
Great story and you feel very involved in their lives. You care about the characters.
Hadassah. She's no victim even though she's a slave. Also Phoebe and her husband Decimus -- admirable characters. Phoebe wisely advises her son Marcus in the end which helps him to better understand Hadassah's fears.
What a great job he did on this book. I thought he was brilliant on the first book - except the women's speech. Well, he took care of that in tihis book and he really fleshed out the women's characters. Bravo
Julia was such a stinker -- nothing admirable about her. It amazed me how central she was to the story. Everyone pitched in to bring her through though.
