Daughter of Jeruasalem-book review

Have you ever wondered why Jesus sought out Mary Magdalene after he rose from the dead?  In the fictionalized book Daughter of Jerusalem you get to know Mary better and understand her point of view of the miracle worker, Jesus.  I really enjoyed this book immensely and highly recommend it as a great summer read!  I let my 13 year old daughter read it and she said she learned a lot of things that she never knew about the Bible.  Of course it's a work of fiction but it makes you think what Mary might have gone through.  I don't want to give too much away and spoil it but let's just say I couldn't put this one down, it's that good. 

 Here's a brief synopsis of Daughter of Jerusalem:

She was a widow, a businesswoman, an adulteress.
In her lifetime, she knew murder, prejudice, and faith. She transformed from a Jewish girl longing for family to one of the closest friends of Jesus of Nazareth -- the Son of God.


In this fictionalized story of one of the Bible's most compelling women, New York Times best-selling author Joan Wolf beautifully recreates the history, romance, and tradition of Mary's world. Daughter of Jerusalem follows Mary's life from her first love through her loveless marriage, to the moment she heard of a miracle worker in her own town -- and ultimately to the moment she saw Him risen from the dead.

As this inspiring chronicle reminds us, Mary was the first to witness history's greatest moment. She was a woman who sought forgiveness for her sins, and a follower of God who yearned for a deeper faith. She was Jesus' beloved disciple. Read Mary Magdalene's story and find yourself in this remarkable woman's journey to discover the Kingdom of God.

The author is New York Times best-selling author Joan Wolf.

 Joan Wolf has lived most of her adult life with her husband in Milford, Connecticut, where she raised two children and an assortment of horses, dogs, and cats. Along the way she also managed to write forty-six published novels the writing of which profoundly enriched her life.
