Publisher's Summary

St. Peter's Square, Rome.

White smoke signals that a new Pope has been chosen.

Is it possible that the new Pope...is a woman?

The world is watching as massive crowds gather in Rome, waiting for news of a new pope, one who promises to be unlike any other in history. It's a turning point that may change the church forever. Some followers are ecstatic that the movement reinvigorating the church is about to reach the Vatican, but the leading candidate has made a legion of powerful enemies who aren't afraid to kill for their cause.

Faith has never come easy for Brigid Fitzgerald. From her difficult childhood with drug-addled parents to her career as a doctor healing the wounded in Sudan to a series of trials that test her beliefs at every turn, Brigid's convictions and callings have made her the target of all those who fear that the church has lost its way - dangerous adversaries who abhor challenges to tradition. Locked in a deadly, high-stakes battle with forces determined to undermine everything she believes in, Brigid must convert her enemies to her cause before she loses her faith...and her life.

Spanning the globe - from the drug dens, high-powered law firms, and churches of Boston to the horrific brutality of a civil war in the Sudanese desert to the beauty, violence, and spiritual enlightenment of the Holy Land - Woman of God is an epic, thrilling tale of perseverance, love, trust, and nothing less than what it means to live in a fallen world.

What the Critics Say

"A high-concept pitch, a potboiler on the page, and a protagonist to cheer for..." (Kirkus)

    "Excellent reader!"

    This is one of the best female readers I have heard – her inflection and intonation was perfect for each character. About the novel: if readers expect a theological masterpiece, this is not it – it is an entertaining novel. The characters become heroes by simply doing the next right thing… and I appreciated the characters imperfections and doubts. It has been said, "The opposite of faith is not doubt. The opposite of faith is certainty. " These characters had very little certainty about life, but continued to return to a simple dependence on God. I like the direction Patterson and many other authors seem to be heading toward developing characters with morality, maturity, innocence, faith, and simplicity.

    "WOW!!!!!! What a great book"

    I agree with the other reviewers. This book was awesome and I listened to it in almost one sitting. It actually took me a day.
    I loved the premise of the book and the narrator was excellent. Stop reading and get the book already. It is well worth the credit and will not disappoint!

    "Great read! Get it right away!"

    I usually don't take the time to review the books I listen to, but this story is so good I want to recommend it! Loved the story line and lived the characters! I highly recommend it to those who like Patterson/Paetro and also to those who haven't read their books. Left me feeling good.

    "Disappointed"

    I am a long time James Patterson fan. I realize times have changed since he is co-authoring most of his books now. This book "Woman of God" there is nothing of James Patterson in this book. I feel he added his name to help the authors sell this new book. Hoping James will think about writing at least one more good mystery again.

    "I should have known better."

    Patterson's books have become a mill for making money.
    Plot was absurd, characters never developed and basic rules of good storytelling ignored.
    Don't waste your credit supporting bad writing that only gets published because a successful author's name is attached to the work.
    For the first time ever I may request my credit back.
    I highly recommend Jodi Picoults new novel. An true example of good writing.

    "Not quite what I am used to from Patterson."

    This book was a little depressing as the main character went from tragedy to tragedy in quick succession. I am used to Patterson grabbing me until the end but I could have walked away from this book at any time. Sad.
