      ‘A Voice in the Wind’ is the first book of Francine Rivers’ trilogy entitled ‘Mark of the Lion’. The first thing that crossed my mind when I started to read it and I figured what it was all about was that it was very much like ‘Quo Vadis’, even the name of the

      main male character is the same (Marcus).

      Whether Francine did that on purpose or not - I don’t know.

      The novel is set in a period when the first Christians were still badly persecuted.

      The little Hebrew slave girl, Hadassah, is a symbol of Christian faith and resignation.

      She is very humble but also incredibly stubborn when it comes to her faith.

      She loves her Roman master, Marcus, but refuses his proposal to marry her because he is not a Christian.

      need for the second part of the trilogy.

      In the end Hadassah is sent to the lions by Marcus’ sister, to the great despair of the young man.

      I personally was quite annoyed by such an ending, because there was no need for it.

      Hadassah simply didn’t realize how strong she was.

      She

      says ‘no’ to love because she thinks Marcus’ personality would crush hers in the end and her faith would be affected.

      I have the feeling that, had she married him in the first place, things would have been exactly the other way round.

      By her love and her personal example, she would have ended by converting him.
