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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
