Library Journal Review

Originally published in 1985, Traylor's intense fictional biography of Mary Magdalene envisions the child Mary being sold by her father to a man who rapes her and forces her into prostitution, completely submerging her old life in the brutality of her new life as "Rahab." As the years pass, Rahab's behavior becomes unpredictable as the demons hidden in her memories come to life, turning her into a madwoman. Her life is saved only by the intervention of a childhood friend who kidnaps her from slavery, but her sanity is still in question until a man named Jesus drives out her demons and convinces her of God's love. A timeless addition to any library collection. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
