A Voice in the Wind~ by Francine Rivers

"But he answered and said, Every plant My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind, And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch."
~Matthew 15:13-14

I first read A Voice in the Wind when I was sixteen years old. I thought I would re-read it now because it has been a while and I enjoyed the book so much before I wanted to re-visit it now that I am a little more mature. I think I finished the book in about two days. This book is sooo good. It tells the story of a Hadassah a young slave girl jewish by heritage and christian by faith. After the destruction of Jerusalem Hadassah is sold to a Roman family. I don't want to give too much away so I will leave it at that. The story shows her struggles with faith and fear and the lives she touches along the way. The beginning of the book is a little slow because it sets the stage, but don't be discouraged it is well worth the effort.

Next on my reading agenda~ Echo in the Darkness~ by Francine Rivers and The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real~by Neta Jackson

I am not sure which I will finish first so we shall see :)
