"It is Ms. Rivers' faith in man and God that lifts these novels onto another plane and brings readers hope in time of darkness." (Romantic Times)
I love this series. I've read it and listened to it several times. The detail of roman life and homes people slave and free, pagan and christian. Characters are interesting well developed. You begin to feel for and with them.
This book is for adults. Many topics are not suitable for young people. Descriptions are accurate for almost everything giving readers a good picture of the depravity of roman society and worship of pagan gods
I found myself completely lost in the story for hours at a time. The narrator's voice is soothing and intoxicating, then suddenly jarring and invigorating. I felt a full range of emotions throughout the story, thanks to the beautiful story and diverse, captivating characters.
People are often confused of the times as they were when the bible was written. This book (series) brings that all into perspective. So many quotes and vivid characters I will carry for the rest of my days.
This was my second time reading (or listening) to this book! AMAZING! I finished in 3 days, because I absolutely could not wait to see what happened next.
