This is an excellent book about a misunderstood woman. The narrative at the beginning works well with the Biblical picture of Mary. ( )

This was a great book.

The first part is the story of what could of been a current day Mary Magdalene and how she changed.

The second part of the book is about the Biblical Mary and what the bible has to say about her. The lessons we can learn from Mary and her demons, her dedication, her despair, her discovery, her declaration.

And we have a bonus recipe in the back for the current day Mary.

Well done Liz. ( )
