Book Description:

One woman desperate for hope. One Savior with the power to heal.

A beautiful girl blossoming into womanhood, Mary has high hopes for a life filled with learning, family, and young love. In one dreadful night, all of that changes. The nightmares come first, then the waking visions of unspeakable terror, until Mary hardly remembers her dreams for the future.

Can the Most High deliver her from this torment? How long must she wait for healing?

This vivid portrait of the enigmatic Mary of Magdala comes to life in the hands of an imaginative master storyteller. Diana Wallis Taylor introduces you to a Mary who is both utterly original and respectful of the biblical account, opening your eyes to a redemption that knows no bounds.

My Thoughts:

The story of Mary Magdalene. A woman there is not much written about. Only about 10 verses in the Bible.

Who hasn’t wondered about her? Who hasn’t thought of what happened to her before she met Jesus of Nazareth? How did she get the seven devils that Jesus cast out of her? Was she ever married? I have and I’m sure you have too, just admit it.

This book is a keeper for sure. I was engrossed in it from the beginning to the end.

The book starts off where Mary is a 12 year old girl I believe. She is just like every other 12 year old who can’t wait to grow up, get married, have children, and happily ever after. Then something happens that will change everything for herself, her family, and the man she will one day marry.

A book to get if you love Biblical fiction. Or anything historical at that. Another keeper.

Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest reviews. These are my words 100%.
