Great story, great telling

Even though I started with the 3rd book of the series, Francine Rivers drew me into the story and made me want to get the first two books! You do not need to have read the previous books to understand this story line, but you want to.
I enjoy historical fiction. The story stays true to historical facts and yet shows that human nature is the same whatever era. The characters are vibrant with both strengths and faults. I love the faith aspect. One more than one occasion I found myself asking if I also held to such foolish emotions despite having the benefit of God's word.
