Happy New Week Lovelies!
Welcome to Memory Lane Mondays!
This is a weekly feature of unforgettable books I have read in times past which have not had the chance to be reviewed on this blog as I read them a long time ago. Lets’ call them my personal classics. I will be featuring a new favorite every week and I hope you will be interested to read and enjoy some as I have.
This week’s pick is….
‘Mark Of The Lion Trilogy’ by Francine Rivers
This is one of Francine Rivers’ greatest books and one of my best. The story was so original and believable. It takes you back to biblical times but this time you feel you are there, you are walking the dusty roads and you are someone in the crowd. This is an unforgettable story that I will always go back to reading as it is filled with so many lessons and so much wisdom. I highly recommend.
