Description

Purple. The foundation of an influential trade in a Roman world dominated by men. One woman rises up to take the reins of success in an incredible journey of courage, grit, and friendship. And along the way, she changes the world. But before she was Lydia, the seller of purple, she was simply a merchant's daughter who loved three things: her father, her ancestral home, and making dye. Then unbearable betrayal robs her of nearly everything. With only her father's secret formulas left, Lydia flees to Philippi and struggles to establish her business on her own. Determination and serendipitous acquaintances - along with her father's precious dye - help her become one of the city's preeminent merchants. But fear lingers in every shadow until Lydia meets the Apostle Paul and hears his message of hope, becoming his first European convert. Still, Lydia can't outrun her secrets forever, and when past and present collide, she must either stand firm and trust in her fledgling faith or succumb to the fear that has ruled her life.

Authors are blessed with creativity.

They have created a work of art with their words. My heart saw God's works and in His works hope, love and forgiveness came alive. It was more than a delightful read. It was a bountiful blessing.

Twists and Turns

This book is worth it. I thought it would cross the line towards cringeworthy but Tessa knows how to toe the line without crossing it. Over the course of 20 years you are thrown into the world of Lydia. This book does an amazing job following the story of Lydia in the book of Acts. It renews your faith in God. Great read!!!!!!!!!

Loved it... Amazing story of Lydia. TessaTessa's beautiful way with words make the reader feel the biblicial fictious reasons behind these great women in the bible for turning to God may have happened that way

Transported Back to Ancient Thyatira

I have grown to love these Biblical times books by author Tessa Afshar. Though mostly fictional, they are based on real people in the Bible. Many times, those people have only a few words or verses to tell us about them. Ms. Afshar takes those verses and expands them to help illuminate the life of these people that are integral, even if only in a small way, to the Christian faith.

In this particular book, we meet Lydia as a young lady. Her father, a dye master and a widower, runs a successful business - but is not so successful at the bookkeeping side of it. Help comes after a near-tragedy - but is it the help Lydia's family needs? Or will this particular golden goose turn to brass? And what happens that Lydia is no longer in Thyatira when she meets Paul?

Reading novels such as these - or rather, listening to them - transforms history from dry and difficult to understand, to very much alive and relatable to life today. Ms. Rendah Heywood provides a believable voice for Lydia, and helps to bring her character not just to life, but makes it seem as though you are at Lydia's own feet, listening to her tell her story. She portrays emotion and drama with skill.


Ms. Afshar has once again done a fantastic job removing the barriers of time, and Ms. Heywood a marvelous job of portraying the story. When listening to this book, I found myself with baited breath more than once. I will definitely listen to this book again and again, and would absolutely recommend it.
