Sisters of Lazarus by Paula K. Parker

Sisters of Lazarus: Beauty Unveiled is about Mary and Martha and their struggles with issues of self-worth. The author often wondered why the sisters were at odds and the book opens with Mary tiptoeing into the house as she returns from market with a hand-mirror for herself instead of saffron for Martha.

My Thoughts:
This is not your every day story of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. It shows a typical sister relationship, one is prettier than the other, one is better at domestics than the other. Listening to them reminded me of my three girls who fought over clothes, the bathroom, and any thing else that they could think of. The difference here is that Jesus comes on the scene and changes everything.
I have read a good number of biblical fiction, and Paula is now a new fave. Recommended!
