Francine Rivers is a phenomenal writer. The characters come alive in her novels. When I read her Mark of the Lion series I couldn't put it down. The truths taught in the New Testament suddenly became real in a new way. If you've not read a novel by Francine Rivers, you are missing out on a powerful experience!
The story of two women, centuries apart, who are joined through a tattered journal as they contend with God, husbands - and even themselves – until they fall into the arms of the one who loves them unconditionally. When Sierra discovers the handcrafted quilt and journal of her ancestor Mary Catherine Murray, she finds that their lives are amazingly similar. Though the women are separated by time and many of the issues and problems they face are remarkably similar.
One of the most life changing christian series I've ever read. Francine Rivers brings ancient Rome to life in such a breathtaking way, you can almost feel the roar of the crowds packed into the colloseum as they wait for the spill of human blood. The realism and imagery she paints is astonishing, at times disturbing, yet extremely moving.
