    Captivating Biblical History novel

    Lydia, Woman of Philippi by Diana Wallis Taylor is a fictional account of the first Gentile convert to Christianity in Asia and is an amazingly remarkable story of this woman who had a significant impact on the growth of the Church. Drawn from the Gospels, the story of Lydia is expertly and beautifully written as the author fleshes out the characters, crafting them into people that seem to step out of history right into the reader's heart and with whom they can connect. Biblical fiction is one of my favorite genres to read and this book did not disappoint. The author brings to life the joys and heartaches of a young woman who enters a loveless marriage and is betrayed by her family and yet, she remains strong in her faith that God would provide and care for her and her loved ones even though her future was uncertain. The richness of the characters and their emotions is completely realistic, grippingly honest and evocative. With descriptive prose and a compelling story, readers are pulled in quickly and it is almost like being right smack dab in the scenes. I like how Paul and several of the other disciples of Christ are written into the story and brought to life too. Lydia is a story of the hope that even in the disappointments and storms of life God can take the broken pieces of our lives and fit them together into something beautiful--a captivating story you will not want to miss. I'm looking forward to reading more of this author's works. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author via CelebrateLit. A favorable review was not required and opinions are my own. This review is part of a CelebrateLit blog tour.
