I am in the middle of this one right now. Due to a nasty stomach virus hitting the family, I am a little behind. I read and loved Journey to the Well by Dianna Wallis Taylor. You can read my review here. I am really looking forward to continuing with this one. What we know from the Bible is very intriguing, and I'm sure that we've all speculated on more of her story. It will be exciting to find out the true story, but until we get to meet the real Mary, it is interesting and fun to read and imagine what it life was like for her. Diana Wallis Taylor creates a historically accurate picture and vividly depicted scenes and characters. I am already deeply engrossed in the book.
Here is the synopsis from her website:
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.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
