Bread of AngelsBread of Angels by Tessa Afshar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second novel I've read by this author. She truly does a remarkable job in bringing Bible characters to life. Biblical fiction isn't the easiest to write, but this book was hard to put down. It isn't a fairy tale, or a book where all is sunshine and roses. I like books that show the difficulties in life and how one overcomes them.

This one is the story of Lydia, the seller of purple. I actually dressed as her in a church activity many years ago. Much freedom had to be taken as not much is said of her. Several Biblical characters make an appearance as well as a special appearance at the end. The story is well written.

The characters were very well done in this read, setting well explained, and the reader truly feels a part of the story. This book has a place on my forever shelves.

"My point is that the work of Christ casts its shadow on your life whether you receive a miracle or not. He may give you forbearance instead of a miracle. Or peace in the midst of turmoil."

I received this book from the publisher. All thoughts are my own.
