St. Peter's Square, Rome. White smoke signals that a new Pope has been chosen. Is it possible that the new Pope...is a woman? The world is watching as historic crowds gather in Rome, waiting for news of a new Pope, one who promises to be unlike any other in the Church's history.

Woman of God Reviews
This poor woman has more tragedies in her life than Job! Just totally over the top and unbelievable. Reading the blurb made me think this was going to be a book about a woman pope - NOT. Another odd religious book by Patterson.
James Patterson and Maxine Paetro have given us another solid hit with Woman of God! This is definitely not the typical James Patterson novel with all the mystery and crime. This is an inspiring story about one woman whose faith has been tested over and over again. It's about tragedy, love, hope and learning how to overcome it all through faith. Often through our darkest times is when our faith is being tested, you can either hold on to it or lose faith altogether.

I really did not like it in fact I pretty much hated it. If it wouldn't have been such an easy read-remember Patterson's books have chapters all of 1 1/2 pages long-I doubt I would have finished it. I finished it thinking will get better, the ending will have some some huge exciting surprise. Nope. For those who haven't read it I'll save you time, Brigid is a religious woman falls in love; the guy dies. Meets a pries whom she likes; he dies. She gets shot; almost dies. Meets a guy, marries him, ...more
Brigid Fitzgerald is a remarkable woman. She graduated from college at 19 years of age. Determined to make something of her life and leave her addicted parents behind, she volunteered as a doctor in a clinic called Kind Hands in South Sudan, a very dangerous and poor part of the world. This begins her story. Wherever her fantastic life took her, and no matter the overwhelming losses she suffered, she tried to find and trust in God. This was her constant struggle.

A terrific read. Woman of God grabs you and takes you on a journey. It deals with faith, but in a way that is totally true to James Patterson with plot twists and page turning chapters. In the end you feel satisfied, entertained, and thought provoked. What more could you want from a book?

While I found the book interesting because of the content, which was partly about volunteering one’s time and working in the South Sudan to help those less fortunate, I found Brigid Fitzgerald to be a totally implausible character. The authors overplayed their hands by portraying her innocence and potential godliness without giving her real substance in that regard. I found her experiences of falling in and out of ...more
This was unlike the usual Patterson books I've read. It was suspense and mystery with a message. However, at the end of it, I was wondering if that overall message was really strong enough.
Brigid Fitzgerald seems to encounter difficult situations (to put it mildly) at almost every single juncture in her life: in her jobs, her relationships, and her faith. We watch as she struggles to maintain her faith in God throughout all her hardships and also as she finds new reasons to believe along the way ...more
I borrowed this book from my local library. I enjoyed reading it. It had a good story to it. I liked the variety of characters in it and how they were involved with the story.
