Publisher's Summary

Before Christ called her daughter...

Before she stole healing by touching the hem of his garment...

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.

No physician can cure her. No end is in sight. Until she hears whispers of a man whose mere touch can heal. After so many years of suffering and disappointment, is it possible that one man could redeem the wounds of body...and soul?

    "Stilted, unemotional narration of a great story"

    I am a huge fan of Tessa Afshar's novels, however the whispersync narration was so annoying, I had to turn it off. Suzy Jackson's reading detracted from the character's anguish by her stilted, unemotional reading. Read the book...skip the audio.

    Story
    "Different story than you think!"

    When I read the plot summary, as I eagerly waited for Tessa Afshar's newest book, I thought I had a general idea of where this book was headed. I was wrong. She weaves together a story of a woman's life that is full of heart ache and disappointment but instead of letting bitterness take root she makes the choice time after time to rely on the Lord. The story is proportioned differently than you would think given that the impression is that the story is about her healing. This story is about her loss and the wounds that needed to be healed.

    Usually I physically read Afshar's books and find them to be full of meaty theological nuggets however this one was more story driven. That is not a bad thing just different from what I expected. I wonder if my listening to this book caused me to miss some of those statements. This is the only reason I gave it four stars instead of five. Basically a departure from the style I have come to love but still a solid read. The performance was also quite good.

    "Very good book"

    This book is well written, but I would rather the reader not make voices for the characters. Ellianna's father sounds more like a woman who has smoked for 25 years. It is very irratating.

    "I wept"

    Touching story of sacrificial love and God's mercy. Gently developed characters that grew wiser with age.

    "Beautiful story. Much to ponder......"

    Beautiful story that will touch the hearts of many who share Elianna's struggles with self - worth, feelings of guilt and unreturned love from a parent or just plain rejection.
    although one feels at times that the course of her life is unrealistically cruel, it is completely possible for some to suffer so much heartache. The lessons hidden in thus book, however leaves one thinking and pondering long after the book is finished.

    "Different take on old story"

    This was a total surprise to me, loved the new twist on an old story. I never would of thought of it that way but this truly opened my eyes anew to some of the Jewish customs, and how they have kept to those beliefs for generations. A love song Roy at it's best telling. Loved the narrator, her voice was such a delight to look listen to. Bravo!!!!

    "Heart wrenching"

    I loved this a lot. I shared Elina's pain, heartaches, heartbreaks, joys, tears. I loved the love story and just how Jesus appeared
