The Book of Longings:  In this imaginative, historical fiction work, author Kidd imagines Jesus Christ’s missing years and speculates that he followed Jewish tradition and therefore was married. His wife is the daughter of Herod Antipas’ head scribe, Ana, and she narrates this story.  When God calls Jesus, however, Ana must, sadly, be left behind. From wealthy Sepphoris to humble Nazareth to Alexandria and beyond, Kidd describes a first-century world full of political and religious tensions, which feels simultaneously ancient and freshly awake with spiritual possibility.  (taken from the BookList Review)
