Lemmons has once again penned a very readable and intelligent book on a fascinating character in the perspective that he alone seems to be able to pull off with great success. Read it when you have time to read it all--pick a weekend and dig into this fascinating personality of the Old Testament.
 
Fascinating follow-up to Daughter of Jerusalem...  Sep 27, 2000
After reading Daughter of Jerusalem, I waited somewhat impatiently for the second novel in Thom Lemmons' series. Lemmons' ability to narrate the female voice is such a surprise that you can't help but fall in love with his main characters. Woman of Means was no disappointment. Lydia stood out in her surroundings right from the beginning. She ran races against boys... And won. She later fell in love with and married one of her opponents, and when her life changed forever, she didn't give up. She moved far from home and became an assistant to her uncle's business and raised two children. This story could be any of our stories. A single mom doing the best she can to support her kids, even when she has issues of her own to deal with. Although the story skipped around often and became confusing, I would still recommend the novel. I would also recommend The Red Tent by Anita Diamant.
 
Woman of Means  Aug 21, 2000
Lydia has always done the unexpected. As a child, she entered a race against boys and won. She chose a man close to her own age to wed, which was not done in the ancient Greek society of her upbringing. She was cursed by the Sibyl to be covered in blood. She cut off all her and delivered herself to the Sibyl's shrine, only to be told that that was not the life for her. Lydia goes back home and marries her young man, Menander. She leads a most solitary life after this. Her husband dies, as does her son, and she holds herself apart from her daughter. Her attention and care is lavished on her cloth dyeing business, inherited from her uncle, the only family member who approved of her. Through first a slave of her former household, and then through a family of cloth weavers, she becomes involved in the Jewish faith. Then she meets Paul, and becomes a follower of Christ. But there is more Lydia must learn, if her life is to be complete. Lydia's story is told as she is an old woman, from her deathbed. The flashbacks, while occasionally disjointed, are entirely sympathetic. A fascinating glimpse into an unfamiliar time.
