  • I've read all of francine rivers' work and i think she's an incredible storyteller. My all time favourite is Redeeming Love which she wrote as her statement of faith.
    The Voice in the wind series is not set against the backdrop of the crumbling Roman empire it is set against a backdrop of the actuall fall of Jerusalem to the Roman army. It also chronicles the rise of the Roman empire, its strengths, crudeness, babaric nature, society and many victories For example i didn't know that Germany was actually captured by the Romans.
    The series tells a lot about those times and it would certainly take a whole post to talk about them.
    One thing i love francine rivers for is that she always sends you back to the source which is Jesus and the BIble.
