Staff Picks - Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar

Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar

This novel is a powerful, gripping and emotional read I couldn’t put down. Eilanna is a woman beaten down by life’s blows and is left with nothing. She's strong, desperate for love and is willing to risk it all to get a touch from Jesus to heal her body and soul. This author allows readers an up-close and personal view of this young lady’s life as readers walk in Eilanna’s shoes and feel her pain. She’s heart sick and desperate to be healed of a sickness that plagued her body and shaped her life.

There are twelve discussion questions to enhance your book club experience. I highly recommend this novel, it’s one you won’t soon forget. This is the first novel I’ve read by this author, it won’t be the last. This is an incredible, life changing story that would be great for your book club. It’s a must read.
