Before she stole healing by touching the hem of his garment . . .
Elianna is a young girl crushed by guilt. After her only brother is killed while in her care, Elianna tries to earn forgiveness by working for her fathers textile trade and caring for her family. When another tragedy places Elianna in sole charge of the business, her talent for design brings enormous success, but never the absolution she longs for. As her world unravels, she breaks off her betrothal to the only man she will ever love. Then illness strikes, isolating Elianna from everyone, stripping everything she has left.
No physician can cure her. No end is in sight. Until she hears whispers of a man whose mere touch can heal. After so many years of suffering and disappointment, is it possible that one man could redeem the wounds of body . . . and soul?
BitsymcRed Lion, PAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Biblical Fiction at its Best!November 1, 2016BitsymcRed Lion, PAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Land of Silence shares the story from the Bible of the woman who had a bleeding issue all her life. Author Tessa Afshar has given her a name, Elianna, which means My God has Favored Me. Eliannas life is anything but favored. She struggles with guilt and grief and just when life becomes unbearable she finds the answer. Will she ignore all rules and touch the hem of the man Jesus that shes heard can heal? Elianna is fearful yet bold. I enjoy Biblical fiction as it breathes life into stories in a new way. Author Tessa Afshar has done her research and added only to the story to intensify what is written in Gods Word. This is a new-to-me author, and I look forward to reading more of her books.
EmilyAnne285 Stars Out Of 5Beautiful Biblical FictionSeptember 28, 2016EmilyAnne28Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When her brother dies in an accident while under her care, Elianna, her father, and her community blame her. Her family is crushed by grief, and Elianna, by guilt. Yet, she is the one person strong enough to keep the family business going and her family from starving. But when tragedy after tragedy strikes her family, will Elianna finally turn to God to healing her hurts, both inside and out?
Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar was amazing in so many ways. In it, Tessa Afshar broke away from writing Old Testament biblical fiction and instead wrote about a woman the Bible tells little about: the woman with the bleeding disorder of twelve years that Jesus healed, whom Jesus called daughter. To a woman whose own father wouldnt forgive her, what words those must have been!
Land of Silence is the story of a woman who goes through all kinds of pain and sufferinginternal, monetarily, physical, romantic. My heart ached for her! As someone who has close friends going through un-diagnosable (or curable?) health problems, I had a glimpse of the kind of pain she was experiencing with the bleeding disease, but that was just one of the problems she was facing. The author drew her so realistically and painfully that it hurt to read at times. But all the pain was worth it to see the beautiful ending. It was glorious and inspiring, and it made the words Jesus spoke to the woman that much more meaningful, having seen all the real woman might have suffered. Oh, and that reminds me! Lydia makes a cameo appearance. And the love interest was one of the most amazing young men I have read about yet. Truly an inspiration.
I really loved this book and would recommend it to those who enjoy inspirational, biblical fiction.

Bookworm Babblings5 Stars Out Of 5A wonderful story of faithAugust 30, 2016Bookworm BabblingsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I recieved a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
The Land of Silence is a beautiful story of one young woman's strength and courage during difficult circumstances. Elianna suffered so much guilt and shame over the death of her little brother. It's bad enough that she blamed herself for his death, but her father not only blamed her but could not find it in his heart to forgive her. She couldn't forgive herself and did everything in her power to end the betrothal to the only young man she has ever loved. She begins delving into the scriptures shortly after her father dies and they are forced to sell the family business.
She finds a loving Heavenly Father but can He find it in his heart to forgive her? Can she ever forgive herself? This is a brilliant story about "the woman with the issue of blood." Her faith was immense! This is a novel that truly strengthen's your faith no matter what you happen to be facing.
