Publisher's Summary

Francine Rivers, a winner of the ECPA Gold Medallion, is a best-selling author of Christian fiction. A Voice in the Wind takes listeners into a richly imagined ancient Rome in the midst of its great decline. This heart-stirring tale of a young slave girl, torn between her love for a handsome aristocrat and her faith in God, transcends genres with its awe-inspiring power and emotional intensity.

Listen to the next book in this series, An Echo in the Darkness.

"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)

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    Story
    "Ancient Rome and Ephesus like America Today"

    I wasn't sure if I'd like A Voice in the Wind . . . if it would be like a dose of Christian medicine . . . but it is an excellent book, mirroring society today . . . culling nothing . . . revealing the truth of the cost of following Christ . . . the debauchery in the hearts of men and women,then and now . . . and just as Solomon said, there is nothing new under the sun . . . abortion, homosexuality, man's worship of knowledge, elevation of self above all else, wealth, blood lust, and all manner of perversion . . . it ran rampant in ancient Rome, just as it does today. America and the "modern" world may try to put a civilized face on it, but we have not succeeded. . . the historical account of the destruction of Jerusalem in 79 AD, the gladiator fights in the arenas of Rome, the corruption of the soul of young Julia over the years, are in stark contrast to the faithfulness of Hadassah, the Jewish slave . . . this is a trilogy . . . I have moved on to the next in the series, An Echo in the Darkness, which so far, is equally good . . .

    "Francine Rivers"

    Francine Rivers is a riviting author. She takes real events from the bible and spins a wonderful story around the facts. Very enjoyable to listen to. I recommend this book to anyone who loves the Bible and enjoys fictional characters bringing the Bible to life.

    "Buy this book!"

    This is an amazing story. But it also is changing me. I am a Christian, but I am learning so much about my life and myself listening to it.
    You will not be disappointed. If I could give it 10 stars, I would.

    "WAY too preachy, even for Christian Lit"

    I'm a huge fan of Christian books, but this one spent soooo much time detailing one of the main character's conversions that I ended up listening to a 20 minute sermon, instead of the plot, story, and characters I had hoped to her from. No dialogue, no flashbacks--nothing but this one character going on and on and on about coming to Jesus. I'm a very devout woman, but come on already!

    "Good story that I really liked..."

    Since it is about the Roman games it reminded me alot of the Gladiator movie with a Christian twist. A little more daring than her other books, but I enjoyed the story.

    "Loved it! All I can say!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Left a full review on the third book, don't worry no spoilers - but this is an amazing series! don't hesitate. I have loved every minute!


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Very picky about narrators after to listening to so many amazing ones here and though his females voices are a little weak, the story has a life of it's own and it was not distracting. He does a nice job otherwise. Don't let the negative review distract you, Worth it!

    "Francine does it again!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely, but it may be too religious for those who don't already have a faith.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's not as heartbreaking as redeeming love but still amazing and very addicting!


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Hodasa (since it's an audio book, I don't know how it's spelled!)


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

    If only I had the time! But I don't.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended. Francine does such an amazing job of tying religious values into heartwarming stories that make me proud to be Christian.

    "Not a fan"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It was a long story that kept me waiting for someone to change their perception of God and Jesus, but only 1 changed - on his deathbed.


    Any additional comments?

    The other Francine Rivers books I have purchased are pretty good! But this one has me questioning if I would waste another credit, or any more money, on any more of her books.
    The narrator was good!
