FORGOTTEN FOLLOWERS (FROM BROKEN TO BOLD SERIES BOOK 1)

Coming Soon! (Temporary cover image)

Alone in a crowd, broken by abuse and trauma, Mara is forced to leave home. Watch her overcome her anxiety and low self-esteem. See the steps she takes to learn how to let go of her feelings of guilt, shame, and worthlessness, and be born into a new self-image and sense of purpose. 

Joanna is broken by racism in a Hebrew society that hates Greeks. She is torn by loyalty to both sides of herself: the powerful Jewish grandfather who raised her, and the Greek father who was ostracised. She feels like an imposter not worthy of her influential position, education, and wealth. She struggles to find acceptance and hope.

Forgotten Followers is a provocative look at women who were eyewitnesses to Jesus, financial patrons who decided to study as disciples and accept their calling as apostles. The novel shines a light on every woman who interacts with Jesus, many of whom have been remembered only for their faults, belittled or forgotten altogether. See how these women work out their beliefs and become bold leaders, speakers, and teachers. May reading their stories help you find hope and peace. 

Elaine Kelly weaves together characters and stories of the Bible with research, interpretation, history, tradition, and imagination, using conversational language and avoiding religious words.  It is a provocative story showing women called by Jesus to be leaders and teachers, encouraging today's women and challenging today's religious leaders.  We hope this novel helps you work out your beliefs and find healing, hope and peace.  May this story encourage you to be your best self, and to do all that God created you to do.
