Overview

Después de descubrir el evangelio escrito por María Magdalena donde se revelaba que Jesús y María Magdalena estaban casados, Maureen Paschal recibe un extraño sobre con una carta antigua escrita en latín que es obra de una mujer olvidada por la historia: la condesa Matilda de Toscana. Cuando intenta averiguar algo más, Maureen emprende un viaje cargado de peligros por Italia y Francia, al tiempo que se da cuenta de que está en la pista de un nuevo y sorprendente descubrimiento: el Libro del Amor, el Evangelio escrito por la propia mano de Jesús. Al tiempo que va investigando la historia de la condesa Matilda, una extraordinaria mujer guerrera del siglo xi, que se había casado en secreto con un Papa, Maureen empieza a encontrar extrañas conexiones entre la condesa y ella misma, conexiones que debe rastrear hasta su origen si quiere impedir que el Libro del Amor caiga en las manos equivocadas y desaparezca para siempre. Combinando la verdadera y poco conocida historia de la condesa Matilda con la emocionante búsqueda de Maureen, sumergida en los misterios del laberinto y en la hermosa poesía del Cantar de los Cantares, esta extraordinaria novela sigue a dos asombrosas heroínas cuyas vidas se unen a través de los siglos.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This second entry in McGowan's “Magdalene Line” series is sure to please fans and entice new readers enthralled with conspiracy theories. Following her discovery of the Mary Magdalene gospel and the subsequent publication of her fictional account of that discovery, journalist Maureen Paschal and Madgalene scholar Berenger Sinclair receive a mysterious package holding an ancient document written in Latin and in code. Research determines that the diary belonged to a little-known woman from history, Matilda of Tuscany. Her diary reveals Matilda's participation in a secret Cather society, her marriage to a pope, and her mission to protect what may just be the most important book in history: the teachings of Jesus, written in his own hand. From Rome to France, from the Inquisition to the present, Maureen and Berenger search for clues that will lead them to the brink of danger while they fulfill their own destiny. McGowan is a master storyteller, and her latest will appeal to Da Vinci Code fans. [Recommended for public libraries where Da Vinci Code—like books in Spanish are popular.—Ed.] [LJ 3/1/09]
