The Book of Longings, the new novel from Sue Monk Kidd, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Life of Bees, is an extraordinary story set in the first century about a woman who finds her voice and her destiny in a time of great despair and great hope. It opens with “I am Ana. I was the wife of Jesus.” Kidd says, “I wanted to portray Jesus as fully human. Writing from a novelist’s perspective and not a religious one, I was drawn to his humanity, which can often be overlooked. Ana wandered into my imagination and I couldn’t ignore her.” Ana is a seeker with a brilliant mind and daring spirit. 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 18-year-old Jesus, he awakens both her intellect and her heart.
