About the Book
For prosperous landowner Lazarus, hard work and extensive travel are a means to comfortably support his family, including his two sisters, Mary and Martha. Following a journey to sell his wares, Lazarus stumbles upon an opportunity to assist a stranger in need, delaying his return home. Through Lazarus’s selfless act of service, he, Mary, and Martha find themselves standing witness to miracles they never dreamed possible in the presence of a man who will forever change them and those they love—a man called Jesus of Nazareth.
Experience as never before the accounts of those who knew Christ, not only as the Savior of the World but also as a friend.

H.B. Moore has written an inspiring and faith filled story in her novel, Mary and Martha. Readers will enjoy getting to know Mary, Martha, and Lazarus throughout the story. The first half of the book a lot of time is spent getting to know the characters and laying out what is yet to come. On the other hand, there was a lack depth and of connection between the reader and the characters in the second half of the story. There wasn’t as much depth and readers will feel like they are speeding through all the events leading up to the death and then resurrection of Christ. Over all this is a heartwarming, sweet and inspiring story that also includes a touch of romance that readers will enjoy.
