Great descriptions, and such a creative take on the topic, and Lydia. I'll definitely have to check out that poem. Great stuff!

Great story. I expected someone would do a story on Lydia, but yours made an interesting connection between two biblical events. Nicely done.
Great example of Ekphrasis. Lovely story, images, touching message and very well written. I enjoyed it very much.
The emotions were so evident in this story. Very vivid, making the events come alive and the people real. There have been a lot of historical fiction written this week and this ranks right up there with the best.
Great story! I like the description of the muscled men! :)

I was hoping someone would do a Lydia story, and this was a very creative take on it. The details about the production of purple dye, etc., really made it come alive. Enjoyed it!

I enjoyed reading this story. It was very creative, and very credible as it wove these Biblical incidences together. I thank you also for your kind words about my entry.
