    A Great Book!

    Song of the Magdalene is a great book! It's sad (I cried when I read it for the first time), but it's still a really, really good book. The story of Miriam is really inspiring. I reccommend this book to anyone 12 and up.

    Inspirational, Covers the Entire Emotional Spectrum

    I just read this book about a month ago, and I still remember a lot of the details. It is the fictitious story of Miriam (who is mentioned in the Bible in several places as 'Mary Magdalene'), daughter of a well-respected, very liberal Jewish widower. She is quite intelligent, and has a love of singing, dancing, and nature. She defies most of the rules and laws about how a young Jewish woman should act, and is shunned by most of the village women. One day, Miriam has some kind of seizure, which confuses her, so she hides it from everyone but the household servant's invalid son, Abraham. The two grow very close, and their relationship develops into love, which no one approves of. The story is an account of Miriam's search for a place of acceptance, along with her heartaches, struggles, dreams, and, ultimately, her triumphs. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone in the 11 to 15 year age range.
