New Hope UMC


Before Christ called her daughter . . .

Before she stole healing by touching the hem of his garment . . .

Elianna is a young girl crushed by guilt. After her only brother is killed while in her care, Elianna tries to earn forgiveness by working for her father’s textile trade and caring for her family. When another tragedy places Elianna in sole charge of the business, her talent for design brings enormous success, but never the absolution she longs for. As her world unravels, she breaks off her betrothal to the only man she will ever love. Then illness strikes, isolating Elianna from everyone, stripping everything she has left.

No physician can cure her. No end is in sight. Until she hears whispers of a man whose mere touch can heal. After so many years of suffering and disappointment, is it possible that one man could redeem the wounds of body . . . and soul?

From a reviewer: "When God sets you free, you are free indeed! This is a beautiful fictional story that has its basis in a real life encounter between Jesus and a woman in need of healing. This book takes the reader on a journey to experience the culture, hardships, and challenges that face a young Jewish woman. Then we read about how she experiences the unfailing love, peace, and presence of her wonderful Savior. This is a fabulous story, that is filled with promise and hope for all of us."
