Woman of God by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro
I would also like to read Woman of God by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. This novel is Completely different to the usual fast paced James Patterson thrillers. It tells the story of a remarkable woman named Brigid Fitzgerald who has her faith tested repeatedly by the most diabolical and tragic events.
It starts with a Papal Conclave to choose the next Pope. The world is watching as historic crowds gather in Rome, waiting for news of a new Pope, one who promises to be unlike any other in the Church’s history. Some followers are ecstatic. Brigid Fitzgerald stands to make history by becoming the world’s first Female Pope in history, however along the way she has also made a legion of powerful enemies.
From a difficult childhood with drug addled parents, to a career as a doctor on the front lines in Sudan, as a medical missionary Brigid sees horrendous acts committed by ruthless rebels against the local population. She begins to doubt her faith. In an effort to find her faith again she goes from place to place, including back to the Sudan trying to find God. She encounters tragedy around her and in her personal life. Brigid Fitzgerald’s convictions and callings also make her the target of all those who fear that the Church has lost its way–dangerous adversaries who abhor challenges to tradition. Brigid finds herself Locked in a deadly, high-stakes battle with forces determined to undermine everything she believes in, and Brigid must convert her enemies to her cause before she loses her faith…and her life.
