She has spent her life caring for others--will she ever find someone who will cherish her?
Martha’s entire life is marked by her responsibilities to her family. In the absence of her mother, she runs the household, makes the meals, cares for her father, and attempts to keep her absentminded younger sister on task. In the midst of her duties, will she ever find time to live her own life--or find her own love?
This touching, well-researched portrayal of Martha of Bethany, sister of Mary and Lazarus, unveils the woman within the Bible character. Through Diana Wallis Taylor’s lush descriptions and inspired fusion of imagined and recorded dialogue, Martha’s world--her trials, triumphs, and loves--vibrantly comes to life.
Follow Martha as she navigates the complicated worlds of family, faith, and love . . . and you’ll never read her story the same way again.
A fresh retelling of the biblical story of Martha, sister of Mary and Lazarus, shows her strength, character, and vulnerability as she serves her family and her Lord.
