The First Stone
The Diary of Mary MagdaleneLarge Print - 2011
As the harsh Jerusalem winter of 1948 wears on, Holocaust survivor Rachel Sachar prays for some word from her husband. Then one night a stranger named Eben Golah arrives with a message from Moshe and the translation of the ancient diary of Mary Magdalene.
Mary was a beautiful child, but when tragedy struck, everything changed in Mary's family. Her dreams of love and children of her own abruptly ended. Now, no amount of wealth or male companionship can bring Mary what she really longs for, nor can they stop the voices calling, "Finish it! You have no reason to live. No hope . . ." But might there be a second chance -- even for someone like her?
