In this second release in the Daughters of Jerusalem series, Thom Lemmons explores the question of what happened to Lydia, Paul's first European convert.

Woman of Means uses strong characters and an imaginative plot to take readers to biblical times. As readers view the struggles of life through fresh eyes, they will be reminded of the commonality of all human struggle and our shared need for God's grace. All those who seek to run well in the race of life will be inspired by the story of a young widow whose indomitable will helps her to survive, and whose restless soul leads her to God.

Physical exercise is at first a hobby and then a reprieve for Lydia as she grows older. Her will to run reflects the tenacious heart inside her that longs for something more. Leaving her family behind is difficult for Lydia, but hope for the future propels her on. It is that abiding hope and tenacious spirit that will lead her to God. The reader of this story has a unique perspective as the narrative starts at the end of Lydia's life and the reader learns about Lydia's past as her life is concluding. The book seems to be Biblically accurate. Though Lydia is mentioned in the Bible and a few facts are given about her, the majority of her life story remains obscure. That's where the fiction portion comes in. Unfortunately, for some reason, I found this book to be depressing. I am not sure if it is because Lydia is literally dying from the beginning of the book until the end or if it is something else. Though the plot of the book moved a little slow for my liking, the conclusion was pretty good. I did enjoy the very unique character of Xerxes. However, because of the depressing nature of the book, I have to recommend renting this book from the library before buying.
