Summary
Elianna's troubles begin with the bee, the one that stings and kills her young brother while he is in her care. Guilt-ridden, she pours herself into work at her family's textile business and breaks her betrothal to her beloved. Another tragedy on top of a chronic illness further her suffering -- but she eventually hears of a holy man named Jesus and touches the hem of his garment in the hope of finding peace and healing. Inspired by the New Testament story found in Luke 8:40-56, Mark 5:21-43, Matthew 9:18-26, Land of Silence is an uplifting, wonderfully imagined novel that makes first-century Jerusalem come to life. -- Description by Dawn Towery
