Giveaway Blood and Silk: The Hidden Love Story of Mary of Magdala and Jesus of Nazereth by Carol McKay

"Blood and Silk: The Hidden Love Story of Mary of Magdala and Jesus of Nazareth is author Carol McKay’s gift to everyone fascinated by the life of Mary of Magdala—Mary Magdalene—and her often misunderstood relationship to Jesus of Nazareth. In this beautifully crafted historical novel, the reader is guided through a time rich with art and architecture, and fraught with change and controversy. Mary’s narration introduces us to first-century Judea, when the atmosphere crackled with fear, and determination of friend or foe was often difficult, if not impossible. As much as theologians paint the story about Mary and Jesus as straightforward and even simple in nature, the author reminds us that theirs was a love weighed down and complicated by the politics of the day. The story of Mary, and then Mary and Jesus, is intricate and often as perilous as the times in which they lived. Founded on historical accuracy and an eye for a well-told story, this is a novel that will fascinate and delight".

  4. The cover made me think of Rome and I would never have guessed the contents. After reading the review it sounds very interesting and I'd love to try a different historical novel that is not just about the english/french courts. Thanks for the giveaway, fondly, Roberta

  15. I had not yet heard of this book. It sounds most interesting. I know little about the history of this time period. I hope the book blurb is correct and it is historically accurate. Should be a most interesting read.

  19. Hello everyone, thank you for the entries and I also have to admit when I saw this cover I thought of Rome too. I am tallying the winners up now and will email everyone shortly. Plus I will post all the winners in Mailbox Monday tomorrow.

    Library Pat, I too hope it is what it says and that it is historically accurate.
