Summary

For the millions of listeners fascinated by Dan Brown's revelations about Mary Magdalen in The Da Vinci Code, here, at last, is their chance to meet the Gospel's most provocative woman face to face - on her own terms. Make way for a new Magdalen. Born on a Celtic isle to eight warrior-witch mothers, Maeve is raised to be as brave as any hero. In her stubborn, enchanting voice, she recounts her perilous quest for the young man, Esus, whose life she once saved from druid sacrifice. Captured and sold to a Roman Madam, Maeve is sustained by a fierce sense of identity, compassion for her sister whores, and her unquenchable love. When she wins her freedom and finds her lost lover, a stormy life begins for both as we follow the Passion story through the eyes of Jesus' partner - disciple to no man. Not even the one she loves. By turns feisty and funny, outrageous and tender, this Celtic Mary Magdalen challenges all stereotypes, both old and new age, and brings us to a transforming encounter with the divine feminine made flesh. Elizabeth Cunningham is the author of the novels The Return of the Goddess and The Wild Mother. She comes from nine generations of Episcopal priests. Though she managed to avoid becoming an Episcopal priest, she was ordained as an interfaith minister of spiritual counsel in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. She balances writing with a counseling practice.

I wish I had 6 or more stars to give this book

I have been waiting for years and years for the audible version of this amazing series of books to come out - it was worth the wait! The story is a wonderfully creative and well-constructed retelling of the life of Jesus from the perspective of a woman, his passionate and very human wife, an equally powerful healer and spiritual force, a witch woman from an island of Women. The characters are wonderful, very believable and the narration is absolutely perfect, so we'll done in every detail, for both the prequel and this book. I stayed up late to finish the book so I could start the next two books in the series today!

Love is stronger than death

Any additional comments?

An irreverent, funny, bawdy, and heartbreaking story of love and passion. The reader makes this book, brings it to life, she is amazing!

Best Version of a Beloved Story

I have read most stories about Mary Magdalene and this one by far is my favorite. Real. Passionate. I love the whole series immensely.

This book changed me

This book is heart wrenching, beautiful and inspiring. I️t moved me to my core and tore at my heart. I wept with Jesus and Maeve through their joys, love and pain. The second book of the Maeve Chronicles will not disappoint.
