The difficult - and unknown - story of the woman who is healed with a touch to Jesus' robes after suffering from hemorrhaging for 12 years is brought to life with vivid clarity and compelling emotion. The story is captivating and honors the struggles that the woman probably dealt with, although Afshar had to imagine much of the background, given how little is provided in the Bible. Nonetheless, the story feels incredibly accurate - historically and Biblically. Elianna's story is, at times, difficult and frustrating to read, but it also makes the culmination of the book incredibly joyful. A beautiful read, and one that truly inspires faith and hope in the face of despair.
