    (70)

    Maureen Paschal thought she might rest and work on her book after discovering the gospel written by Mary Magdalene that revealed Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married. The truth of their story rocked the world and made Maureen a target of those who did not like her discovery and a heroine to those who did.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The history and stories of Matilda and Italy were interesting, but the modern-day characters had no development.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kathleen McGowan again?

    Probably not


    How could the performance have been better?

    A completely different narrator. This narrator spoke in a slow, choppy manner with odd inflections and sustained pronunciations of some words. It was so irritating to listen to and I was tempted frequently to stop listening. I do enjoy stories about Italy, and that was the only reason I completed the audiobook.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The plot was fair, but the narration detracted from the story. My reactions were irritation, anger and boredom.
