Publisher's Description

In a world that would keep her broken... Tirzah was determined not to follow in the footsteps of her mother, and of her mother's mother before her, into the life of a harlot. But when she is orphaned as a young woman, with no father to provide a dowry or offer protection to her and her dearest friend, a crippled girl, what is she to do but take to the streets? Then news of the teacher named Jesus reaches her, and she dares to believe he can heal her friend...but can he perform the greater miracle of mending the broken pieces inside Tirzah's soul?

    The Hidden Faces Series by Golden Keyes Parsons is a series of novellas about women of faith, who met Jesus. In the series there is the woman at the well; the woman caught in adultery; the woman who touched the hem of Jesus' garment, and the book I am reviewing today, the woman who anointed Jesus' feet with oil.

    As a child, Tirzah could not understand why the other children were not allowed to play with her nor even why she could not go to school like the other children. As she grew, she began to wonder why her mother had so many male visitors, something her mother did everything she could to protect her from. But when Tirzah's mother dies as Tirzah comes into young womanhood, she is left with nothing; nothing with which to purchased food or other necessities or to pay rent. With her best friend Claudia, a cripple from birth, the young women strive to live without succumbing to her mother's occupation, one that also her grandmother's occupation, prostitution.

    Sadly, Tirzah is left with no other recourse and begins to follow in her mother's footsteps into a life she never wanted for herself. Her friend Claudia continues to bake bread to help supplement their income. As time goes by, something in Tirzah begins to shrivel and her spirit becomes more saddened; and Claudia, her crippled foot begins to trouble her more and more, until she just barely stand. Then they hear about Jesus...Tirzah knows he can heal Claudia and is determined to make sure her friend meets him. But what about Tirzah? Surely the things she has done are unforgiveable and Jesus would never associate with the likes of her.

    Drawn to him, Tirzah and Claudia make plans to go to a feast at Simon's house; Jesus will be there. Claudia walks on feet that have been made whole, but Tirzah carries a heart heavy with guilt and shame...she also carries an alabaster box full of perfume. Expensive perfume. What could she possibly be planning to do with it? Even Tirzah doesn't know what happens next.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. A positive review was not required.

    PS. I would be remiss if I did not note that Golden Keyes Parsons died in a car accident in February of 2017. While she may be gone from this earth, her voice lives on in her family, her books and her life. Rest well, Golden Keyes Parsons.

    Golden Keyes Parsons has a talent to describe Biblical times in such a way that we can sense the heat of the desert town and feel the grit of the sand caught in our teeth after the wind storm. Once again she draws the reader to another place and time and gives us a deep back story to one of the more familiar passages in the Bible. How many times have I read about the woman cleaning Jesus's feet with her tears and hair? It's easy to gloss it over and not think of what might have driven her there--but the author paints another picture that helps us identify with what it was like for a woman to survive on her own in Biblical times. And what it was like to face the savior of the world with her sins laid bare. Tirzah is a character we can easily sympathize with, her compassions go deep and her sense of failure and brokenness is one we can all identify with. I found this book to be stirring and though provoking.

    I honestly got goose bumps when I read the last line of Golden Keyes Parsons's novella, Trapped. What a glorious and tender way to end this sweet and yet raw-with-honest-emotion story. I loved it.

    Trapped is a 75 page novella of the Hidden Faces series. It's a short read, but one that takes you into a biblical event surrounding a figure in history that we know so little about. And yet this woman's true story---when she was thrown at the feet of Jesus as an adulterous and immoral woman---has touched so many hearts over the centuries.

    Golden Keyes Parsons is a writer who seamlessly weaves her God-given talent for teaching into this lovely romance novella with the two fictional characters Anna and Eli. With her expertise in historical detail, the author sets a beautiful stage so that the era comes alive.

    I highly recommend this delightful Biblically-set novella. What a wonderful read for an afternoon at home, or on several commuter trips to and from work. It would also be a great read for a book club.

    Bravo once again, Golden Keyes Parsons.
