Praise For The Well…
“Stephanie Landsem breathes fresh life and understanding into the story of the woman at the well. Under her skilled pen, the characters, the setting, the history of ancient Samaria spring to life. The Well is a debut to stir the soul.”
-Elizabeth Ludwig, author of No Safe Harbor
“It's a rare story that you can't put down. Even rarer is a story that compels you to set it aside, reflect, and pray before you can go any further. Stephanie Landsem takes a tale you think you know and leaves you breathless with unexpected discoveries. I found myself stunned by The Well and humbled and inspired by the faith journey of her characters. This is a masterpiece.”
-Regina Jennings, author of Love in the Balance and Sixty Acres and a Bride
“A captivating account based on a familiar biblical story, Stephanie Landsem brings clarity, hope, reflection, and plenty of enchantment to The Well.”
-Alice J. Wisler, author of Rain Song (Christy Finalist) and other southern fiction
"As you open the pages of Stephanie Landsem’s The Well, get ready to embark on a journey through the places where Jesus traveled—breathe the scent of an olive grove, taste the barley bread and sweet melon, walk along the dusty road to Galilee. Most of all get ready to have your own faith stretched as you read about those lives Jesus touched and how they were never the same again."
-Ruth Axtell, author of Her Good Name and Moonlight Masquerade
“Stephanie Landsem breaks into historical biblical fiction with an intriguing and compelling story. The Well is sure to win the hearts of readers, and Landsem is a welcomed new voice to the publishing world.”
-Rachel Hauck, bestselling, award winning author of The Wedding Dress and Once Upon a Prince
“In The Well Stephanie has written a biblical novel that tells about a little known woman's encounter with Jesus that will resonate with readers. I felt I was right there, struggling with Mara, aching with her in all her agonies and cheering for her to struggle through them. Stephanie Landsem is a writer to watch.”
-Lauraine Snelling, author of the Red River of the North series and Reunion
"...an interesting and imaginative work; highly recommended."
