Publisher's Summary

Mary Magdalene...
The controversial woman with a past only one Man could forgive. A true love story that changed the face of history.
"I was Miryam of Magdala, seller of fine fabrics and wife of Yaakov the fisherman. With my husband and son, I held a place of honor among my countrymen until a company of rogue soldiers took everything from me. I might not be Roman, but I knew injustice when I saw it. And I had been most grievously wronged."
In an era when women are sequestered and silenced, Miryam of Magdala lives a contended life until her son's careless gesture evokes a hostile action that shatters her serenity. With no hope of justice, Miryam commits an unthinkable act...and descends into depths of darkness that threaten her life and her sanity.
Even after Yeshua the Messiah dramatically restores her life, Miryam can neither forget nor forgive unresolved injustices. Prodded by a hunger for vengeance she will not deny, this woman of uncommon courage risks her life and her heart by drawing destiny into her own hands.

Ok story, but hard to listen to

Would you consider the audio edition of Magdalene to be better than the print version?

No, I haven't read the book, but it was hard to listen to this book. A written book would be easier to understand.


What other book might you compare Magdalene to and why?

None comes to mind.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

To make more distinction in the person who is speaking. Give each character some sort of identification.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending


Any additional comments?

The reader was hard to understand. She had a slight accent or something. Some words were hard to know. She lacked enthusiasm for the book, or so it felt.

Highly recommended

We have found the enemy and we are it. We are own worst enemy. Jesus came to save us from ourselves. All of these thoughts go through my mind as I consider this amazing book by Angela Hunt that I just listened to. Excellently written. The characters are well-developed and the storyline was well thought through. I liked the different personalities in the book. It's very much like what we find in real life. The end was not obvious either and I liked the suspense.
