Mark of the Lion (Mini book review)

A good friend lent me the Mark of the Lion series by Francine Rivers a week or two ago. I'm at the end of the second book and I LOVE THEM! The books take place 70 years after Jesus' birth and follows the plotline of a Jewish girl named Hadassah. Hadassah is taken captive when Rome overtakes Jerusalem. The story involves a multitude of characters and their stories are all woven together. Through these books I feel like my faith has strengthened, I look at God differently, and all the while I'm having crazy roller-coaster-emotions! If you haven't read these books, I greatly encourage you to do so. They will seriously change you. But, if you need a lot of sleep for one reason or another, I encourage you not to purchase or read the books. You won't get sleep.

  1. Haha! I'm just catching up on all the posts on your blog....and I happen to love this one! You're definitely right about the sleep thing. We won't talk about my grades in school for the couple of weeks I spent reading the series! Lol!
