Purple. The foundation of an influential trade in a Roman world dominated by men.

One woman rises up to take the reins of success in an incredible journey of courage, grit, and friendship. And along the way, she changes the world.

But before she was Lydia, the seller of purple, she was simply a merchants daughter who loved three things: her father, her ancestral home, and making dye. Then unbearable betrayal robs her of nearly everything.

With only her fathers secret formulas left, Lydia flees to Philippi and struggles to establish her business on her own. Determination and serendipitous acquaintancesalong with her fathers precious dyehelp her become one of the citys preeminent merchants. But fear lingers in every shadow, until Lydia meets the apostle Paul and hears his message of hope, becoming his first European convert. Still, Lydia cant outrun her secrets forever, and when past and present collide, she must either stand firm and trust in her fledgling faith or succumb to the fear that has ruled her life.
