Nothing less than 5 Stars for this beauty!
This is such a breathtaking story–so honest and hopeful and humbling. A Voice in The Wind is a Christian Fiction with religious themes that are heavily pronounced. There’s no way around them. Religious beliefs, customs, biblical analysis, and Christian theories saturate this story from top to bottom and every crevice in-between. If that’s not your idea of fun, than this one may not work for you.
This story is long, over 500 pages, and is slowly paced. Each character represents very specific elements of Christian faith–stemming from its humbled servants, to the self-righteous, to the non-believers, to the down-right evil.
The setting is historical, taking place after Jesus’ death, right before the rise of Christianity. The plot narrows in on the lives of four characters who will eventually connect. There are brutal moments–slavery, abuse, fight-to-the-death gladiator battles–and there are tender, peaceful moments that are every bit as powerful. Maybe even more so.
The writing is beautiful and aids this story to life. There’s truly so much depth and meaning to dive into, I couldn’t help becoming inspired.
There is a romance, a very powerful one, but its progression is quite slow. In fact, every bit of this story moves at a believable speed. When people change and/or recognize the error of their ways, it’s a slow process. It’s never an instant turnaround–and I loved how this author remains true to that.
