THE GREATEST STORY NEVER TOLD! A POLITICAL RIVALRY THAT ENDED IN TWO EXECUTIONS AN INTRICATE LOVE TRIANGLE THAT ALTERED THE COURSE OF HISTORY A RELIGIOUS REVOLUTION THAT CHANGED THE WORLD

Two thousand years ago, Mary Magdalene hid a set of scrolls in the rocky foothills of the French Pyrenees, a gospel that contained her own version of the events and characters of the New Testament. Protected by supernatural forces, these sacred scrolls could be uncovered only by a special seeker, one who fulfills the ancient prophecy of l'attendue -- The Expected One.

When journalist Maureen Pascal begins the research for a new book, she has no idea that she is stepping into an ancient mystery so secret, so revolutionary, that thousands of people have killed and died for it. She becomes deeply immersed in the mystical cultures of southwest France as the eerie prophecy of The Expected One casts a shadow over her life and work and a long-buried family secret comes to light.

Maureen's extraordinary journey takes her from the dusty streets of Jerusalem to the cathedrals of Paris . . . and ultimately to search for the scrolls themselves. She must unravel clues that link history's great artistic masters, including Sandro Botticelli, Nicolas Poussin, and Jean Cocteau; the Medici, Bourbon, and Borgia dynasties; and great scientific minds like Leonardo da Vinci and Isaac Newton. Ultimately, she, and the reader, come face-to-face with Jesus Christ, Mary Magdalene, John the Baptist, Judas, and Salome in the pages of a deeply moving and powerful new gospel, the life of Jesus as told by Mary Magdalene.

From AudioFile:

This title shares a similarity of subject matter with THE DA VINCI CODE--the possibility of a Gospel written by Christ's wife and apostle, Mary Magdalene. But THE EXPECTED ONE takes a different approach. As read by Linda Emond, this story of a Magdalene descendant, writer Maureen Paschal, is certainly a spiritual quest. But it deals with the inner lives of the characters rather than focusing on a physical search for evidence. Emond's approach is low-key; her command of accents (American, French, Scots, Italian, and Irish) is never permitted to upstage the characters. The author's claim to be a Magdalene descendant and her afterword add further interest. C.E.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
