This book depicts the Roman era and it showed how depraved the people were without Christ in their lives. There is hope and Haddassah's character shows how we should serve one another with a servant's heart. This book does not hide the violence at all. Francine Rivers is so detailed in her writing, that I could smell the foul air, where the slaves were held in the ships. I could feel their desperation. I could feel the eternal hope in Haddassah. It was a long book, but I didn't want it to end. Be sure to read all three books in the series. I believe my husband would enjoy this book too, it isn't all about romance.
I only gave it 4 stars, because I would have liked another narrator, possibly two narrators. One for the males and one for Haddassah. He wasn't terrible though and it didn't keep me from listening.

Nevermind that the story itself was unbelievably rich and entertaining and satisfying. Nevermind that the narrator has the deep voice that IS like a "voice in the wind". Ms. Rivers is certainly touched with the grace and love that she writes for her characters. In one work of fiction, she compellingly conveys the grace and love of the God she writes about.
