A Voice in the Wind

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Francine Rivers

Narrated By: Richard Ferrone

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: March 2004

Duration: 21 hours 32 minutes


Francine Rivers, winner of the ECPA Gold Medallion, is a best-selling author of Christian fiction. A Voice in the Wind takes listeners into a richly imagined ancient Rome in the midst of its great decline. This heart-stirring tale of a young slave girl, torn between her love for a handsome aristocrat and her faith in God, transcends genres with its awe-inspiring power and emotional intensity.

    Storyline was really good. seemed to include so much of life in ancient Rome that hopefully reflects good research and not just a good imagination. I have to agree with other review that was a bit slow moving. my biggest beef is the narrator chosen. 21 hours of that raspy radio commercial voice does not make for a easy listening voice. even after 21.5 hours of listening I could not get used to his female voice for Julia. makes me think of a stubble faced man in a dress with hairy legs showing and some lipstick and rough on his face trying to play a female figure. he's not alone as I have listened to other books with this problem as well. would be better is he just read all parts with his normal voice and far less distracting. or have a female reader do all female parts and men do men parts only. I pray this approach will take one day soon with audio fiction books.

    Absolutely love this book. Feels like I know Hadassa and it almost feels like she is so real. A great story! Have read/listened to it twice already.

    The story moved EXTREMELY slow. I tried my best to finish it, but I found it difficult. I listen to half the book and felt bored to tears. I love some of Francine Rivers books, but this one was frustrating slow and boring.

    One of my favorites!! Compelling story about a girl growing in her faith as she faces challenges that are present in today's world. Great read for renewing one's own faith.
