Purple. The foundation of an influential trade in a
Roman world dominated by men. One woman rises up to take the
reins of success in an incredible journey of courage, grit,
and friendship. And along the way, she changes the world.
But before she was Lydia, the seller of purple, she was
simply a merchantâ€™s daughter who loved three things: her
father, her ancestral home, and making dye. Then unbearable
betrayal robs her of nearly everything.
With only her fatherâ€™s secret formulas left, Lydia flees to
Philippi and struggles to establish her business on her own.
Determination and serendipitous acquaintancesâ€”along with her
fatherâ€™s precious dyeâ€”help her become one of the cityâ€™s
preeminent merchants. But fear lingers in every shadow,
until Lydia meets the apostle Paul and hears his message of
hope, becoming his first European convert. Still, Lydia
canâ€™t outrun her secrets forever, and when past and present
collide, she must either stand firm and trust in her
fledgling faith or succumb to the fear that has ruled her life.
