THE BOOK OF LONGINGS

À propos

Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2020 by O, the Oprah Magazine , Good Morning America/ABC-TV, Good Housekeeping (US) and Marie Claire (US) An extraordinary story set in the first century about a woman who finds her voice and her destiny, from the celebrated number one New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Life of Bees and The Invention of Wings 'I am Ana. I was the wife of Jesus.' In her mesmerizing fourth work of fiction, Sue Monk Kidd brings her acclaimed narrative gifts to imagine the story of a young woman called Ana. Ana is a rebellious young woman, a gifted writer with a curious, brilliant mind, who writes secret narratives about the neglected and silenced women around her. Raised in a wealthy family in Galilee, she is sheltered from the brutality of Rome's occupation of Israel. Ana is expected to marry an elderly widower to further her father's ambitions, a prospect that horrifies her. A chance encounter with the eighteen-year-old Jesus changes everything: his ideas and his passion are intoxicating. Taking Ana on a journey she could never have imagined, The Book of Longings is a glorious evocation of a time and a place where astounding events unfolded, and of one woman's fate when she fights to make her voice heard. Over 10 million readers have devoured Sue Monk Kidd's novels. Here's why: 'A wonderful book . . . funny, sad and full of incident' Daily Telegraph 'Wonderfully written, poignant and humorous' Joanna Trollope 'Masterly . . . a story about empowering women to change the world . . . a remarkable novel' Chicago Tribune
