UMW Book Circle

Sally Hines will lead a discussion on The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd. This novel is written from the point of view of a young woman who is the daughter of Herod’s chief scribe. She desperately wants to become a scholar and writer, and her ambitions are sidetracked when she meets Jesus and ultimately becomes his wife. There is a lot to discuss about the challenges women faced in first century Galilee, the author’s treatment of Jesus and other subplots and storylines.
