Daughter of Jerusalem by Joan Wolf Review & Giveaway

In Daughter of Jerusalem, readers will quickly identify with Mary Magdalene – a woman of deep faith who used her wealth and influence to serve Jesus.

This fictionalized story of Mary Magdalene is, in the truest sense of the word, an inspirational novel for modern people who are looking to renew in themselves the message of Christ. It’s the greatest story ever lived, told by one of the most famous women who ever lived, and it’s a page-turner. Joan Wolf’s years of success as a novelist enable her to combine storytelling and a faith plot in this beautifully written biblical fiction.

I've read many stories about Mary of Magdalene, but this is the first one that is contemporary in my opinion.   Daughter of Jerusalem follows the live of Mary from her first marriage until she meets Jesus.  The writing is keen and Wolf has a knack of painting vivid pictures with her words.  Jerusalem just comes to life, creating an authentic background for Wolf's Magdalene.

Inspiring, emotional and complex, Daughter of Jerusalem is a compelling read.  It makes me want to be a better person after reading about Mary and Jesus.  Their faith is unwavering and their love for one another shines through as well.  I loved this book and highly recommend it!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
