Cunningham weaves Hebrew scripture, Celtic and Egyptian mythology, and early Christian legend into a nearly seamless whole, creating an unforgettable fifth gospel story in which the women most involved in Jesus's ministry are given far more representation.-Library Journal This year's must-have summer reading.-KINK Radio Lavish and lusty . . . Cunningham's Celtic Magdalen is as hot in the mouth as Irish whiskey.-Beliefnet (chosen as one of this year's heretical beach-books) Explodes off the page with its tales of love, hope, power, and redemption-book clubs looking for a great discussion, take note.-TheBookBrothel.com.
About the Author
Elizabeth Cunningham is the direct descendant of nine generations of Episcopal priests. When she was not in church or school, she read fairytales and fantasy novels or wandered in the enchanted wood of an overgrown, abandoned estate next door to the rectory. Her religious background, the magic of fairytales, and the numinous experience of nature continue to inform her work.
