Year 15, Book 56

56. The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd

Sue Monk Kidd imagines a story in which Jesus had a wife named Ana. The story follows her from her childhood where she was a rebellious girl who was interested in things that girls were not allowed to do like study and write through her adulthood and marriage to Jesus. The story imagines why she would not have been at Jesus’s side during his public ministry and how her name would have been erased from history. I thought it was an interesting thought exercise. I give it a 7 out of 10.
