"In her fourth work of fiction, Sue Monk Kidd brings her acclaimed narrative gifts to imagine the story of a young woman named Ana. Raised in a wealthy family in Sepphoris with ties to the ruler of Galilee, she is rebellious and ambitious, a relentless seeker with a brilliant, curious mind and a daring spirit. She yearns for a pursuit worthy of her life, but finds no outlet for her considerable talents. Defying the expectations placed on women, she engages in furtive scholarly pursuits and writes secret narratives about neglected and silenced women. When she meets the eighteen-year-old Jesus, each is drawn to and enriched by the other's spiritual and philosophical ideas. He becomes a floodgate for her intellect, but also the awakener of her heart. Their marriage unfolds with love and conflict, humor and pathos in Nazareth, where Ana makes a home with Jesus, his brothers, James and Simon, and their mother, Mary. Here, Ana's pent-up longings intensify amid the turbulent resistance to the Roman occupation of Israel, partially led by her charismatic adopted brother, Judas. She is sustained by her indomitable aunt Yaltha, who is searching for her long-lost daughter, as well as by other women, including her friend Tabitha, who is sold into slavery after she was raped, and Phasaelis, the shrewd wife of Herod Antipas. Ana's impetuous streak occasionally invites danger. When one such foray forces her to flee Nazareth for her safety shortly before Jesus's public ministry begins, she makes her way with Yaltha to Alexandria, where she eventually finds refuge and purpose in unexpected surroundings. Grounded in meticulous historical research and written with a reverential approach to Jesus's life that focuses on his humanity, The Book of Longings is an inspiring account of one woman's bold struggle to realize the passion and potential inside her, while living in a time, place, and culture devised to silence her"--… (mer)

The fictional wife of Jesus, Ana, did not keep my interest, and did not finish. ( )
  myers3 | Mar 1, 2021 |
Kidd's novel is narrated by Ana, the wife of Jesus ben Joseph. Ana was raised in a rich household and allowed to learn to read and write. She is outspoken and eager to have a voice. One day in the market she meets a young man, whose humor and kindness attract her.
Both Ana and Jesus are well drawn, wonderful characters, as are Ana's aunt, Yaltha, her brother, Judas, and several others. We have sympathy for both of them as they deal with the daily matters of life in the first century, and as both grow into something much larger. Circumstances force them apart for long periods of time; they miss each other terribly but carry on with their separate missions. Kidd show each coming into better understandings of their god, their responses to the conditions of the world, and their meaningful destinies. Highly recommended! ( )

Well developed characters, very interesting concept (Ana is Jesus' wife, yes, Jesus of Nazareth). The book is a well written novel highlighting the trials of women back in early history. The bonds they form are strong, lasting and necessary. ( )

Really enjoyed reading this, not just for the story and the writing, but the things I learned about the world at that time. Pandemic read. ( )

Ana and her brother Judas were raised in a wealthy family in Galilee. When Ana meets a worker - Jesus - she is instantly enamored with him. However, her parents have engaged her to marry a much older man. On the eve of her wedding the older man is struck ill and dies. Ana, now considered a widow, has few, if any, prospects. When she is almost stoned in the village, Jesus steps in and saves her. The two are married shortly afterwards.

I am an atheist, I was a bit hesitant about reading this book however, I was instantly drawn in to the story. The book was not preachy, was not religious, instead it was just a well written, engaging story. I would love to read more from this author. Overall, highly recommended. ( )

I am the first and the last
I am she who is honored and she who is mocked
I am the whore and the holy woman
I am the wife and the virgin
I am the mother and the daughter
I am she . . .
Do not be afraid of my power . . .
I am the knowledge of my name
I am the name of the sound and the sound of the name

                       THE THUNDER: PERFECT MIND
Knock upon yourself as on a door,
and walk upon yourself as on a straight road.
For if you walk on that road, you cannot get lost,
and what you open for yourself will open.
