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.

Thom Lemmons has published numerous works of fiction and non-fiction, including Sunday Clothes and the best-selling Jabez: A Novel. He is the senior editor at Texas A&M University Press.From Library Journal:
In this fictional account of the life of Paul's first convert in Philippi, Lemmons (Daughter of Jerusalem; Daniel) uses narrative flashbacks to allow the dying Lydia to relive the best and worst moments of her long life. She remembers growing up Roman with many gods; racing, and beating, the boys in front of the entire city of Thyratia; marrying, and mourning, her beloved husband Menander; bearing, and losing, both of her children; and struggling for years in Philippi as she learned the cloth and dye business from her uncle. Most importantly, she recalls the day a group of travelers, including Paul, stopped at her garden gate and asked if they could join her as she listened to Hebrew Scripture. Lydia's memories are occasionally difficult to follow, but this is, on the whole, an entertaining book. Recommended for most collections.
