Young Magdalen and Jesus, brimming with youthful charm and arrogance, find each other and fall in love, forging a bond that is stronger than death. Their pleasure is overshadowed by a brilliant but unbalanced druid who knows a perilous secret about Maeve's past. The prequel to The Passion of Mary Magdalen.

"Smart and earthy.... Richly imaginative.... The epitome of the storyteller's art." (St. Louis Post-Dispatch, named one of The Year's Best Books)
"This amazing book could well become a classic of women's literature." (Booklist, named one of the Year's Ten Best Fantasy Books)
It is a bit unorthodox for the author to be writing a review, but the audio format is new to me and is a work of art in itself. I love the words I wrote and I love hearing them spoken in Heather O'Neill's beautiful, expressive voice. What is better about the audio version is that Maeve is a first century Celt trained in the oral tradition. As such she is skeptical of the written word. Maeve and I are both thrilled that you can now hear the story as she always intended for you to do.
The Maeve Chronicles are comparable to other epic series, like Tolkien's and Gabaldon's.
I have not yet, but I will. She is a superb reader!
Well, Maeve is second to no one of course. But I have a fondness for all the wild old women. The Cailleach, Dwynwyn and Anna the Prophetess.
Treat yourself to these books no matter how many times you've read them or if you have never read them. Your life may be changed, as mine surely was in writing them.
The author's knowledge of the New Testament and her ability as a storyteller.
Yes. She does a great job and continues to be one of my favorite narrators.

Listened to the entire series and highly recommend it.
