Waiting on Wednesday (6)

Waiting on Wednesday is brought to you by Jill @ Breaking the Spine :-)
Poisoned Honey: A Story of Mary Magdalene by Beatrice Gormley

Publication Date: March 9, 2010


Why I'm So Antsy:

This story begins with Mariamne, a vulnerable girl who knows little of the ways of the world. Much as she wants to be in control of her own destiny, she soon learns she has no such power. She must do as her father and brother see fit, and when tragedy strikes, Mari must marry a man she does not love and enter a household where she is not welcome, for the good of her family.

But she finds a small way to comfort herself when she meets an Egyptian wise woman who instructs her in the ways of the occult arts. In the spirit world, Mari finds she has power. Here, she really is in control of her fate. But is she? Or is the magic controlling her?

This gripping portrait of one of the most misunderstood and controversial Biblical figures is the story of a young girl’s path through manipulation and possession, madness and healing, to a man who will change the world forever.

Wow what an interesting story! Can't wait for this one. What are you waiting on??
