    "Wow"

    I tend to shy away from novels written by women; however, I wanted this book these books to go on and on. My wife recommended this after reading it, and I was totally cought up in the story and charactors. These books also reminded me of my own faith and motivated me to be stronger.

    "Amazing book!!!!"

    I love the author's writing style. It draws you in and holds you there every moment. The story portrays our greatest fears and deepest longings, while challenging our faith and the depths of our love and forgiveness. Beautifully written, Mrs. Rivers!!!

    "Incredibly breathtaking!"

    I thought the first was great, but this was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! I found myself crying & crying at the end of the story! Not only because Francine weaved this tale so beautifully, but because of the reminder of God's transformational power & love. I am His beloved, and so are you. No matter the sins of the past or scars we have He heals, renews, restores. He is good!

    What was one of the most memorable moments of An Echo in the Darkness?

    The theme of God's forgiveness permeates.


    Any additional comments?

    My husband could not make it through this series, but for us ladies ... Well, the characters are not realistic, but they are lovely. The author serves us well, because she creates characters that inspire.

    "I love this series. Excellent!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of An Echo in the Darkness to be better than the print version?

    yes


    What was one of the most memorable moments of An Echo in the Darkness?

    There are several twists and turns that kept this story interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Richard Ferrone’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I loved Richard Ferrone's reading.

    Marcus was the most interesting character. This entire book and it's characters are interesting because of its history and the similarity it has with our culture today.

    I can't wait to read (hear) the last book of the series. Francine Rivers is an excellent writter.

    "interesting and well written"

    although this book is based on the christian religion and I am not an advocate of discriminating relligions I found the book well written and interesting. despite the main character of Hadassa being a but over the top and annoying because of this. The writer has woven the characters and the storyline masterfully.

    "Faith building story of love and forgiveness!"

    Transports the listener to a long ago time when Christians were persecuted. One young girl's experiences lead her to face her fears and doubts and listen to God's direction. This story does not disappoint! A true love story on many levels!
