The Book of Love
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Date: March 2009
Duration: 17 hours 30 minutes
An ancient mystery...An epic love story...A divine message, hidden in plain sight
Maureen Paschal is regarded as both a heroine and a target after discovering the gospel written by Mary Magdalene, which revealed that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married. Then Maureen receives a strange package containing what looks like an ancient letter by an extraordinary woman whom history has overlooked -- or covered up: Countess Matilda of Tuscany, whose letter demands the return of her 'most precious books and documents.'
Maureen soon finds herself in a race across Italy and France, where hidden dangers await her and her lover, Bérenger, as they begin to realize that they are on the trail of another explosive discovery: the Book of Love, the Gospel written in Jesus' own hand. As Maureen learns more about Matilda, an eleventh-century warrior countess who was secretly married to a pope, she begins to see the eerie connections between herself and Matilda, connections she must trace to their source if she is to stop the wrong people from finding the Book of Love and hiding it forever.
The Book of Love follows two amazing heroines as their stories intertwine through time. Maureen is immersed in these mysteries and Matilda's amazing legacy...until a potentially fatal encounter reveals the Book of Love to Maureen -- and to the listener.
