He Called Me Daughter

Run not walk and get this book!  Especially if you are a lover of Christian Fiction.  I have never read a book by Tessa Afshar before I received a copy of this book by Tyndale house to review.  It looked interesting so I choose it for my next book to review.  Honestly, it might have been because my small group/Bible Study had just done a study on the unnamed women of the Bible, and I became interested in the women who had the bleeding disease.  I remember wondering when we were studying her, what was her life like, what were her dreams and fears?  What drove her to have the courage to touch Jesus without Him seeing her?

Tessa takes what little we know about her for real, and creates a heartbreaking but beautiful story of hardships and healing.  Even though the book is a work of fiction, I truly felt like I walked the streets with Elianna.  I felt her pain when her dad turns from her, I wanted to yell at her when she loses the man she loves, and I rejoiced out loud when she found healing in Jesus.  

Read the book, engross yourself in the story and be reminded that Jesus forgives and heals us from the inside to the outside.  Elianna had a hard life, but when she learns the true meaning of being a Daughter of God, her life is never the same.

Thank you to Tyndale for my complimentary copy of Land of Silence, which I received in exchange for my honest review.
