Editorial Reviews

Review

"Unique and engaging...the author does an admirable job of balancing well-known Biblical stories with original episodes that feel authentic to the spirit of the characters and the time...with a modern sensibility" -BookLife Prize, indie division of Publisher's Weekly.

"One of the most vivid fictional presences I've read in recent years -- defying her father to marry Simon Peter and following him into a life in which holiness eclipses toil and poverty. From The Dead Sea to Jerusalem, Magia is able to evoke the world of the Gospels with beautifully penned prose." -Duncan W. Alderson, author of the Harper's Bazaar must-read Magnolia City

"Catherine Magia has penned a moving Christian story that transcends religious boundaries--a novel that occupies the rare space between the historical and the Biblical realms. At once speculative and interpretive, Magia's vigorous first-person narrative of St. Peter's wife makes a compelling case for the life, motivation and spirituality of a minor, nameless Biblical character. An ambitious and impressive debut." -Andrew X. Pham, author of Catfish and Mandala and The Eaves of  Heaven: A Life in Three Wars


"Magia's prose is graceful and descriptive, evoking a strong sense of place...the characters complex and engaging." -Historical Novel Society     

"Right from the start, the evocative and compelling tone of The Fisherman's Bride casts its line and draws in readers with a deftness that borders on enchantment. A powerfully written, compelling account of the impact of Jesus on all layers of society, narrated from the eyes of an outsider to his central group of believers who uses the ordinary life experiences of an unnamed wife to chronicle an extraordinary journey of love, faith, and miracles." -D. Donovan, senior reviewer, Midwest Book Review              

"Magia's prose is languid and easily readable...intrinsically intimate and personal. She writes with skill and confidence about the ancient traditions...most of all, she writes captivatingly and intensely about the endurance of love--a subject she promises to explore further in an upcoming sequel." -Joe Kilgore, The US Review of Books

"...the kind of literature I haven't read for a long time. Just the idea of writing about the wife of one of the eminent figures in Christian literature, Simon Peter, is appealing. But the execution is what will haunt readers; it's a very engaging and entertaining story...I have never read anything like this! The characters are glorious, the writing fascinating, with words flowing like a spell, and a plot that takes readers on a spiritual odyssey into the center of their own hearts." -reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers' Favorite

"Readers will be riveted...The author does a tremendous job of taking the reader back in time to when Jesus walked the earth...fresh and original." -Kate Campbell, InDtale Magazine

"Magia's descriptive abilities transport us with all five senses into the ancient fishing villages surrounding and including Capernaum and Jerusalem...her prose often ascends to poetry." -Elaine Lyons Bach, author of Gentle Journey, member of Catholic Writers' Guild
