The Book of Longings
Ana is a rebellious young woman, a gifted writer with a curious, brilliant mind, who writes secret narratives about the neglected and silenced women around her.
Born in Galilee at a time when women are seen as possessions, only leaving their fathers' homes to marry, Ana longs to control her destiny. Taught to read despite her mother's misgivings, she wants to find her own voice, a voice that will speak for the silenced women around her.
Betrothed to an elderly widower, Ana almost despairs. But an encounter with a charismatic young carpenter in Nazareth awakens new longings in her, and a different future opens up.
