Who is Mary Magdalene?
A prostitute?
A saint?
A madwoman?
A goddess?

This compelling portrait of one of the most misunderstood and controversial figures in the Bible traces a young girl's path through manipulation and possession, madness and healing, to a man who will change the world forever.

"Fast-paced and vivid." School Library Journal
"A gripping re-imagining of a biblical figure." Publishers Weekly
"Gormley gives readers a Mary who will seem familiar to teens, full of pride and passion, hopeful yet hesitant."
