The New York Times best-selling author of Elizabeth I brilliantly reimagines the story of the most mysterious woman in the Bible.
Was Mary Magdalene a prostitute, a female divinity figure, a church leader, or all of those? Biblical references to her are tantalizingly brief, but we do know that she was the first person to whom the risen Christ appeared - and the one commissioned to tell others the good news, earning her the ancient honorific "Apostle to the Apostles". Today, Mary continues to spark controversy, curiosity, and veneration. In a vivid re-creation of Mary Magdalene's life story, Margaret George convincingly captures this renowned woman's voice as she moves from girlhood to womanhood, becomes part of the circle of disciples, and comes to grips with the divine. Grounded in biblical scholarship and secular research, this fascinating historical novel is also, ultimately, "the diary of a soul".

A well told story of a female disciple of Jesus
- Diane E. Sidener
Yes- there is so much real- geographical historical data and so many important messages that I know I must hear it again. "He who has ears, let them hear."
A bit of history, a bit of speculation but all in all- a wonderful journey!
Mary and then, unfortunately....Judas...!
Jesus and Blessed Mother. I also loved meeting Jo-Anna and Susanna.
Mary Magdelene has been my Patron Saint for a very long time. This book helps bring to life part of her amazing, yet still somewhat mysterious life on earth and relationship as a true disciple of Christ.
