Wishful Wednesday...Character

I wish I could play a character's role in a book and it would be Haddassah in Francine Rivers' Mark of the Lion Series.

This was really hard for me. I read WAAAAY too many books to try to pick out one! This one just kept popping up in my head, so I went with it :). While I was reading this series I was constantly thinking that I would love to have the faith that Haddassah had. It was so strong. So pure. There is no way to describe it, you must read it! Journey back to the crumbling Roman Empire and meet Haddassah, a young slave girl; Marcus, a handsome aristocrat; Atretes, a brave gladiator; and Rizpah, a beautiful young widow. The gospel of Christ is the only weapon they have to battle the immorality that surrounds them -will they be wise enough to use it? (obviously got that directly from Francine Rivers' website)
I can't wait to go through the rest of the links and see if I can find some new books to read! I would like to get another couple of books in before Connor gets here. Head on over to Kelsey's Blog to play along and get your own book ideas!

I love Francine Rivers...she is good and drags me into the middle of whatever story she tells...

Great choice!
