Lee and Vic weren’t the only ones to love The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd… Here is what the QBD crew thought:
What if Jesus had a wife? Ana is a rebellious young woman raised in a wealthy family in Galilee, 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. A beautifully written, well-researched, and intriguing historical novel that reimagines the religious
and historical time of the Saviour with a feminist view.
