Bread of Angels by Tessa Afshar

Into the Wild

Read Bread of Angels Online Free - 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.

Bread of Angels was my first book by Tessa Afshar, and I was pleasantly surprised by her gift to artfully expound on Biblical stories. This one covers Lydia, briefly mentioned in scriptures as a "seller of purple." It was beautiful to see Lydia's story intertwined with the life of Paul, and walk...

Tessa's unique voice--offering both wit and wisdom--emanates from every page. Lydia's story is achingly tender from the first flutter of romance to the last sting of betrayal. An intensely emotional journey. An utterly satisfying read. Acts 16 comes to life in BREAD OF ANGELS.

Tessa Afshar brings to life Acts 16 and the story of Lydia. There is so much to love about Lydia. She is independent, hard working and kindhearted to name a few of her positive attributes. The story spans over many years taking readers to the time when Paul was alive and visited Phillipi. It was a...

I love Tessa's books and this was no exception. Her historical details that she puts in these stories is one thing, but the life changing lessons are another.  I loved how she mentioned characters from "Land of Silence" briefly in this story as well, one of my favorite books.  I was struck again by...

This is the second novel I've read by this author. She truly does a remarkable job in bringing Bible characters to life. Biblical fiction isn't the easiest to write, but this book was hard to put down. It isn't a fairy tale, or a book where all is sunshine and roses. I like books that show the di...

Ms. Afshar's attention to detail and historic facts take you right into the time of Paul during his travels through the Roman empire. She brings Philipi and Thyatira alive on the page, as well as the art of dying purple. One thing I love about biblical fiction is that it prompts me to go to the Bi...
