*Starred Review* Angered by the assertions of The Da Vinci Code (2003)--in particular, that Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene--Hunt tells the traditional story, more or less, of Mary Magdalene. The "more or less" would be that Hunt turns Mary into a staunch feminist and downplays her history as a prostitute. She is Yeshua's shrewd advisor and helpmate, no more. And she is an interesting woman, though more interesting than Mary, in the end, is the Roman soldier Atticus. He takes the same role that Macellus did in The Robe (1993), that is, the doubting enemy brought into the fold. In any case, Hunt has turned in a solid effort, one of her best, though it seems unlikely it will have any effect on the Dan Brown tidal wave. John Mort

I love historical fiction and especially Biblical fiction. Fleshing out characters from the Bible is wonderful.Published 1 month ago by Chris Careme
With a sacred imagination, the author creates a life for Mary of Magdala that Scripture does not provide. Yes, why not? Read morePublished 1 month ago by jlala
Difficulties I hearing the reader. She has a very soft voice. I read more then I listen and I love listening when I'm trying to go to sleep. Story material very good.Published 1 month ago by ME Griff

Generally speaking, I was disappointed in this novel. The main reason is the lack of relationship between Mary and Christ. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
