Considering how very little is known about Mary Magdalene, this is a masterful imagining of her story. It brings to life what it must have been like to be one of Jesus' disciples, and their struggles to understand Him, their fear at His arrest, and their desolation at His death. The one part I could have done without was the too-lengthy post-resurrection story of her attempts to find her daughter, and their many mis-communications: it was long and somewhat tedious. I understand its necessity in the story but just didn't find it compelling.

Would you listen to Mary, Called Magdalene again? Why?
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."
What did you like best about this story?
A bit of history, a bit of speculation but all in all- a wonderful journey!
Which character – as performed by Kate Reading – was your favorite?
Mary and then, unfortunately....Judas...!
Who was the most memorable character of Mary, Called Magdalene and why?
Jesus and Blessed Mother. I also loved meeting Jo-Anna and Susanna.
Any additional comments?
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.
