I just finished Divine by Karen Kingsbury and I think it was one of my favorite novels by this author. This book is to be read as a modern day interpretation of the life of Mary Magdelene. It was written a few years ago around the same time that the "The DaVinci Code" movie was released. Those of you that read The DaVinci Code or saw the movie will remember that the story revolves around a fictional - even blasphemous - relationship between Mary Magdelene and Jesus. I believe Kingsbury uses this story to prompt people to discover the real history behind Mary Magdelene. In this story we follow the life of Mary Madison (the modern Mary Magdelene) as she tells it to a young woman that is undergoing a major life crisis. The reader is able to see that God has woven a unique tapestry for each of our lives. The story was very engaging and the reader is likely to experience a full range of emotions as the story unfolds.
As an aside, I read and enjoyed The DaVinci Code remembering all the while that this was written as purely fiction.
