The Book of Longings is about Ana, the wife of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Honestly, I was disappointed. I have enjoyed previous books by Sue Monk Kidd. This book was a great change from her normal style of writing. Though well researched, it was not appealing to me.
And if you can believe that Jesus was married, then there are some shocking details about his wife, Ana. I won’t elaborate so I don’t spoil the shock value should you choose to read this book.
Thank you to NetGalley and Viking Publishing for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
