    "Voice in the Wind"

    I listened to this on Audible Books. I’ve read the entire trilogy before. Because it’s my favorite book I wanted to read it again. These books begin as Jerusalem is overtaken and the survivors were taken as slaves. The book is centered around a young Jewish girl named Hadassah. Without giving out spoilers I’ll just say Francine Rivers never disappoints. This trilogy was life-changing when I read it the first time.

    "narrator was perfect this book"

    A good book to understand true hedonism, not too dissimilar from contemporary cultures. Some parts languished on and I was disappointed with end fast ending.

    "riveting and gutwrenching"

    do not expect an ending. beautiful descriptive writing, compelling story, deeply developed characters, though not the typical fun light read I usually go for, I'd still recommend this book.

    "Straight to your heart"

    This is a timeless novel. It confronts our very core of beliefs. How we view the world what's important. I fell in love with this character and went through all her experiences with her while questioning myself on how I would handle both the circumstances and the characters . An excellent live view of Rome. I could smell and feel what life would be like during that time and able to relate it to these times.
    Definitely one of my top 5 books and I will never forget Hadasa. A must read for people with faith without faith, searching or just an excellent read.

    "Great Books"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Voice in the Wind to be better than the print version?

    Both were equally good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Voice in the Wind?

    There are some many moments its hard to pick just one. I think the effect Hadassa has on people as she is completely unaware of it.


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice holds great emotion for all the charters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I have no idea


    Any additional comments?

    Francine Rivers is an incredible author who captures real struggles in lives and brings Gods purpose to light through these beautiful stories. She manages to beautify bring different stories of many people all struggling in different areas in their lives and brings them all to redemption through a humble, faithful servant of the Lord.

    "Amazing "

    I have read this book 2 or 3 times over the years and thought it would be fun to get it for audible.
    At first, I had a hard time with the narrator but that's only because after reading it several times, you almost imagine what the voices should sound like and when a mans voice is trying to be a little girls, it can be hard. Overall he did an excellent job though.

    This book is full of description, depth, scripture and truth. Beautifully written and really, a wonderful lesson in trusting God.
