Did you like The DaVinci Code?
Here it is.
A story that will captivate you, enchant you, and challenge you. History, mystery, romance, betrayal, joy and tears, fear and bravery….all bound together in a story that will mesmerize you from the first page to the last. What more could you ask for?
“An ancient prophecy predicts the arrival of The Expected One, a woman who is destined to bring Mary Magdalene’s gospel to the world. When Maureen Pascal stumbles into a dangerous and secret world of people who will fight to the death to keep or to destroy one of the world’s most powerful secrets, she also discovers that the ancient prophecy points directly to her…. She deciphers ancient clues, defies the world’s most powerful traditions, and risks her life in order to fulfill her destiny and find the scroll that begins:
“I am Mary, called Magdalene, a princess of the royal tribe of Benjamin and a daughter of the Nazarenes. I am the lawful wife of Jesus, the Messiah of The Way….I leave these words for the children of the future, so that when the time is come they may find them and know the truth of those who led The Way.”
Kathleen McGowan’s portrayal of biblical characters such as Jesus, Mary Magdalene, John the Baptist, Judas, and Salome is riveting, to say the least. I could not put this book down. I started it during the day and forced myself to stay awake long into the night reading page after page...mesmerized by a story that seemed so real, so plausible. And it has haunted me ever since I finished it…leaving questions in my mind without possibility of ever being answered…at least not in this life’s whelm. Challenge your mind and spirit, and read this book. It may be a work of fiction, nevertheless, it could leave you wondering if maybe, just maybe……..
