Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar
This is a fictional story of Bibical facts,The woman who touched the hem of Jesus Robe for healing.
Tessa has woven a fictional story giving this woman a voice and a name,Elianna who has such guilt when her only brother dies while in her care from a bee sting. She cannot forgive herself and it weaves through many years of her life.
She seems to always put others before herself,helping always helping.
She and Ethan were bethrothed from their youth but as she became the age to marry, one thing or another always stayed it. Until the day she told him she could not marry and he was free to marry another. It broke her heart to do this but as usual she was thinking of others and not herself.
Tessa does an outstanding job of telling about the area where this family lives and of all the troubles that beset them. I got this book from @Crazy4fiction,thank you.
