Publisher's Summary

Mary Magdalene...

The controversial woman with a past only one Man could forgive. A true love story that changed the face of history.

"I was Miryam of Magdala, seller of fine fabrics and wife of Yaakov the fisherman. With my husband and son, I held a place of honor among my countrymen until a company of rogue soldiers took everything from me. I might not be Roman, but I knew injustice when I saw it. And I had been most grievously wronged."

In an era when women are sequestered and silenced, Miryam of Magdala lives a contended life until her son's careless gesture evokes a hostile action that shatters her serenity. With no hope of justice, Miryam commits an unthinkable act...and descends into depths of darkness that threaten her life and her sanity.

Even after Yeshua the Messiah dramatically restores her life, Miryam can neither forget nor forgive unresolved injustices. Prodded by a hunger for vengeance she will not deny, this woman of uncommon courage risks her life and her heart by drawing destiny into her own hands.

    "Highly recommended"

    We have found the enemy and we are it. We are own worst enemy. Jesus came to save us from ourselves. All of these thoughts go through my mind as I consider this amazing book by Angela Hunt that I just listened to. Excellently written. The characters are well-developed and the storyline was well thought through. I liked the different personalities in the book. It's very much like what we find in real life. The end was not obvious either and I liked the suspense.

    Story
    "Ok story, but hard to listen to"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Magdalene to be better than the print version?

    No, I haven't read the book, but it was hard to listen to this book. A written book would be easier to understand.


    What other book might you compare Magdalene to and why?

    None comes to mind.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    To make more distinction in the person who is speaking. Give each character some sort of identification.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending


    Any additional comments?

    The reader was hard to understand. She had a slight accent or something. Some words were hard to know. She lacked enthusiasm for the book, or so it felt.

    Story
    "Magdalene"

    Magdalene is a well-crafted story about the life of this Biblical woman--a woman whom Jesus freed from demons. Some events are purely the author's ideas, but many are based upon the Bible account and seem plausible. The narrator did a good job of portraying various characters.
    In this novel Mary suffers great loss and later seeks vengeance against the Roman soldiers. Her life is interwoven with that of Atticus Aurelius, a Roman centurion. The story opens with Mary on trial for a crime against Atticus and his son. There are many surprises and twists and turns, especially at the end. I recommend this book which I received through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Magdalene in living color, but not as expected."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Magdalene to be better than the print version?

    I have heard the audio only.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lots of historical detail included and facts listed at the end of the story.


    Have you listened to any of Darla Middlebrook’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't. But, her voice grew on me. I especially thought her voice for an older woman's was good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Unless you planned a getaway for that purpose, it was too long. It was very enjoyable to listen to Magdalene's story unfold.


    Any additional comments?

    Unexpected turns hold you until the very end. It slowed a bit in places, but made up for that in plot and suspense.
