Mary is a dedicated child, obedient towards her parents but with secrets of her own. Her family doesn’t know that she secretly learns to read or that she possesses a pagan idol. It is with the passing of years, that the harmless seeming idol takes its toll on Mary, finally imparting its evil on to her. Beset with such devils, Mary seeks aid, first from her husband then from the priests, but all seems to be in vain. Even her penance in the wilderness on her own, doesn’t seem to be adequate in driving out the demons that torment her.
She then comes across a man, one who rids her of her troubles, and one who Mary would follow till the end of her days. In life, this man, Jesus, becomes a symbol of hope, of trust, of education and in his death he becomes a symbol of faith. Mary abandons her family and joins the group of disciples who wander around the country with Jesus, preaching and healing.

Jesus has many followers and even more enemies. As his popularity increases so does the threat to his life. When he can no longer be ignored, he is captured with the help of Judas. Judas’ betrayal weighs down heavily on all, but more so on Mary who revered her rescuer and would have been lost without him. Jesus is put to death on the cross with Mary and Jesus’ mother a witness to the ugly end. Lost in prayer of her own, Mary becomes the first person to see Jesus after his resurrection. She thus becomes the Apostle of the Apostles.



Margaret George has easily made it to the list of my favorite authors. She writes with such flair, that even obscure characters of history seem to come alive before the eyes of the reader. In this book, Margaret George takes her readers on a journey to Israel into ancient times where the people are simple, their lifestyles dull compared to our times. But the story of Mary was riveting enough for me to not feel the weight of this 600 page book. An author whose works I’m going to be awaiting eagerly.

Nacida en un pueblo pesquero en el seno de una acomodada familia judía, María Magdalena se caracterizó, ya desde sus primeros años, por su inusitado deseo de conocimiento. Fue también en su infancia cuando comenzaron sus visiones, hecho que marcaría su vida para siempre. Abocada a un largo y tortuoso proceso de transformación espiritual, huyó al desierto. Allí su destino se cruzó con el de un joven profeta, Jesús, cuyas palabras le ayudarían a encontrar un sentido no sólo a sus visiones, sino también a su existencia. Convencida del mensaje, pasó a formar parte del círculo más cercano de Jesús, contribuyendo activamente a la forja de un nueva fe. María Magdalena decidió entregarse totalmente a esa misión y continuó con la divulgación de la palabra de Jesús, incluso después de la muerte de éste. Su elección, sin embargo, la obligó a renunciar a su marido e hija, un sacrificio que despertó todo tipo de rumores que han llegado hasta nuestros días.

Overlong fictional biography of Mary, covering how she was possessed by demons and how her encounter with Jesus caused her to join his group of disciples. Views the construction of the church after Jesus crucifixion and the roles of women in the 1st century. ( )

It's a very well written story, especially since there isn't much written about Mary; in the Bible or elsewhere.
There are good messages in the book: many interpretations of versus, not one religion is perfect, live in the now, not the past or future, tell people you love them now, don't wait... etc. ( )
