    Wonderful book Francine Rivers used to write secular novels, but found her calling was with Christian stories I found myself pulled into the story, wanting to know what happens next, and being fascinated with the Roman way of life Knowing how Francine Rivers writes, I m sure the historical accounts of everyday Roman life is pretty accurate Yes, there is love and romance, but only hints of sex Nothing tawdry ...

    I have a different perspective than most of the Goodreads reviewers of A Voice in the Wind An avoider of the romance genre both Christian and secular I loved the first part of the book, depicting the fall of Jerusalem and Haddassah s transition to Roman slavery I previously dispassionately stored in my mind the historic fact that losers in wars became the slaves of their conquerors, but Ms Rivers long, emotive description made the horror and depth of that trauma real to me in a manner I ha I have a different perspective t...
