Book Review - Mary Magdalene by Diana Wallis Taylor

Publisher's blurb:
One woman desperate for hope. One Savior with the power to heal.
A beautiful girl blossoming into womanhood, Mary has high hopes for a life filled with learning, family, and young love. In one dreadful night, all of that changes. The nightmares come first, then the waking visions of unspeakable terror, until Mary hardly remembers her dreams for the future.
Can the Most High deliver her from this torment? How long must she wait for healing?
This vivid portrait of the enigmatic Mary of Magdala comes to life in the hands of an imaginative master storyteller. Diana Wallis Taylor introduces you to a Mary who is both utterly original and respectful of the biblical account, opening your eyes to a redemption that knows no bounds.

My review: I have never before read the story of Mary Magdalene. I found this story very interesting and  thought provoking. Those familiar with her story may not find it as interesting, I don't know. Overall, I foudn this book focused on loving your fellow man as well as believing God will provide, if you ask him to. I would recommend this book.
