Publisher's Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

Readers who enjoy Francine Rivers’ Lineage of Grace series will love this standalone book from an author who has shown grace and skill in weaving well-known biblical stories with fictional additions to bring these historical figures to life.
Afshar has created an unforgettable story of dedication, betrayal, and redemption that culminates in a rich testament to God’s mercies and miracles.
Afshar continues to demonstrate an exquisite ability to bring the women of the Bible to life, this time shining a light on Lydia, the seller of purple, and skillfully balancing fact with imagination. A scant few Scripture verses, making up most of what’s known about Paul’s first European convert, transform into a fictionalized backstory full of adventure as well as inspiration and redemption. And it’s a story that will drive readers deeper into the Biblical account. Readers are also advised to keep their eyes peeled for a fond nod to Afshar’s previous New Testament-based story.

    This review was written for Bread of Angels, Hardcover.
    Bread of Angels is a masterpiece - what can I say? This author's writing is just plain stunning. This book is about Lydia in the Bible, or shall I say, based on her. You walk with the women, and men of the Church of Phillipi in Acts, but not only them you also get to walk with Paul, Titus, Timothy and Luke. You were part of a family their Christian family. You feel like you were with her worshipping our LORD back just after he had died and the new Church had just begun being made - you feel goosebumps as if you are there and the feelings you feel, and the intense Joy as you Praise the LORD or listen to Paul, it's astonishing how this author can pull you in and make you feel such intense feelings as if you are there back in time and place with Lydia. If you EVER buy a book or value an author THIS IS IT. I was given a complimentary copy of this book to read; all the opinions in this review are all my own.

    Oh. My. This book is amazing!!! I haven't read a book that has touched me spiritually in a long time. And this fiction book managed to do that.

    This was a book that drew me in and didn't let go and I didn't want it to let me go even when I reached the last page.

    I had to keep reminding myself that Lydia had no belief in God at the beginning. She was so kind through the whole book but she had no faith.

    Paul doesn't show up in the book for a long time but when he does he is brought to life in a way I have never felt before.

    I also loved how characters from the previous book that Tessa wrote (Land of Silence) were brought into this one, and the realization hat Lydia made an appearance in that book and I didn't even know it.

    I really can't say enough about this book. It is deeply touching, it will remind you of the freshness of the gospel and how we need to always keep that in the forefront of our minds.

    A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher. All opinions are my own.

    Excellent book as are all of her books. So little is said in the bible about Lydia of Philippi that it was wonderful to put a little background to her. I loved the introduction of Paul,Luke and Silas to the story and followed the account in the Book of Acts. Fiction, yes, but wonderful to think about our biblical persons with histories so like us. I love Tessa Afshar's book and am always excited to see a new one published.
