anyone who needs something to believe in no matter the situation
Read in September, 2007
This is the first book in a series of three. I read this one and the second one, but not the third. The storyline/characters change in the third and those characters didn't intrigue me like the characters/main theme in books one and two.
This is Christian fiction. Francine Rivers came highly recommended and I tried to read a couple of her books on several occassions but just couldn't get into them. That was not the case with this one. It started with a bang and was a page turner until the end. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the second one either.
This is a story of faith and love. It will lift you up and break your heart and make you strive to find a faith that is as strong as that of the heroine of this story. Hadassa, is a shining light in a dark Roman world.
