Here's a belated TRW as I got sick and shirked my duties. Sorry all! I'll return you to your regularly scheduled TRW on Sunday.
A Voice In The Wind by Francine Rivers
This is now my most favorite book! Set in Rome, this book is about a captured Christian named Hadassah, and a parallel story about a captured Germanic gladiator named Atretes. Hadassah's master is a 16-year old aristocrat girl named Julia. She falls in love with her Julia's brother, Marcus. A tale of faith, love, murder, and real Rome.
I loved seeing both Atretes and Marcus change from "animals" into real men. What an affect women can have on them, seriously!
