What is so different about her that has left people across the ages all trying to decide who she was and what her story really is?Diana Wallis Taylor does not say that she has a difinative answer but rather adds a new depth and warmth to a woman that is most certainly tainted with all sorts of rumors For the first time readers may see a side of Mary Magdalene that they had never considered beforeThis is the story of a beautiful woman the apple of her father's eye who's world is instantly shattered when she is suddenly struck with seizures and other mental illnesses In a society riddled with tradition and old wive's tales with beliefs mixed from truth and folk tales she is just as instantly turned an outcast from the peoples that once loved and embraced her Suddenly with out support and love struggling with the unknown we find a woman destitute broken hopeless and longing This makes for the perfect redemption storyFor are we not all in out own ways outcasts struggling just to fit in with the norm Longing for acceptance and seeking answers for our own inner demons Are we not all broken and hopeless in some way longing for the healing touch of a savior that will set our world to rights and bring order to the chaos of our hearts and mindsWomen every where will be able to relate to this love story of a God who seeks to save his children for we are all these children This woman so immersed in the shadows of religious gossip and scandal is suddenly brought into a different light and we find to our surprise she is much easier to relate to than we first believedExcellent job Diana Wallis Taylor you have done it again IF you are looking for a good addition to you biblical fiction library this is itThanks to Regal for this review copy

text Mary Magdalene

Mary MagdaleneTive master storyteller Diana Wallis Taylor's Mary is a woman devastated by circumstances beyond her control and plagued with terrifying dreams until she has a life changing confrontation with the SaviorLove Although written as a novel it was an excellent study of Mary Magdalene the one from whom Jesus had cast out seven demons and recorded in the Bible as the first person to see the risen Jesus “Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week he appeared first to Mary Magdalene out of whom he had cast seven devils And she went and told them that had been with him as they mourned and wept” Mark 169 10The fact that women were the first to visit the tomb and the first person to see the risen Jesus is evidence that the Biblical account is not fiction because if it was fiction the writers would have chosen someone other than women to be witnesses At that time in Jewish history a woman’s witness was not worth anythingAs I read the novel I checked Biblical accounts for accuracy I learned uite a bit about Mary Magdalene as a result of reading the novel The only thing that bothered me a little was it appeared that Jesus ascended to Heaven after visiting with the Disciples the one time Actually He was on earth and seen by some 500 different people over a 40 day period before ascending to Heaven
