Zahava is blessed to have a husband who loves her, and she is ready to give him a house full of children. But when a series of miscarriages leave her with empty arms and an incessant issue of blood, she is cut off from all those she loves. Unclean. Unable to be touched.
Her husband never gives up hope that they will find a cure. But hope seems as unattainable as healing to Zahava . . . until a carpenter she once met in Nazareth stirs an ember of faith inside.

Being a novella, this book is small, but in its brevity, it is an enjoyable and meaningful book. It reads quickly, but really adds depth to the account of the woman with the issue of blood mentioned in Scripture. The author was great at inserting details to fill our the story and make it true to the setting. I loved the relationship between Zahava and her husband Gideon. His devotion to her was heartwarming. What really stood out to me, though, was the desperation and hopelessness that Zahava felt, and how those feelings built throughout the course of the novella. I enjoyed this book, and recommended it to readers of biblical fiction. I also think that it would be great for a women's book club or Bible study; there is much to be discussed in this story. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. I received this book from the publisher, Whitefire, for review purposes. The thoughts expressed here are my own
