Summary
Elianna is a young girl crushed by guilt. After her only brother is killed while in her care, Elianna tries to earn forgiveness by working for her father's textile trade and caring for her family. When another tragedy places Elianna in sole charge of the business, her talent for design brings enormous success, but never the absolution she longs for. As her world unravels, she breaks off her betrothal to the only man she will ever love. Then illness strikes, isolating Elianna from everyone, stripping everything she has left
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
