Woman of God Reviews
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.
A well-written and inspiring s ...more
Brigid Fitzgerald is a doctor in South Sudan. She sees devastation every day, but her faith in God keeps her going. When tragedy falls on Brigid over and over again, her faith will be tested. Will she be able to find the purpose God has for her, or will she lose faith before that?
The story starts 20 years in the future on an Easter Sunday. I was reading the book around the same time, so it all seemed to fit in well together. Brigid is getting reading for Sunday morning mass at church. While in R ...more
Very (& surprisingly IMO) good story!
The first chapter opens 20 years from now with the possibility of a woman being named the next Pope. Brigid Fitzgerald is that woman. From the second chapter on we go back to current time and follow Brigids journey to see how she arrived at this point in her life. We follow her to the Sudan as a medical missionary where she sees horrendous acts committed by ruthless rebels against the local population. She begins to doubt her faith. In an effort to find her faith again she goes from place to pla ...more
This is a side of James Patterson that demonstrates his ability to traverse in many genres. This time the author explores faith from the Catholic church. Even as I'm writing this review, I'm getting goosebumps as I prepare to give you a synopsis from my point of view.
Bridget Fitzgerald is a woman whose running from something, trying to save others. She's just compleyed her residency and shes in South Sundan, in Northern Africa, working in a makeshift hospital called Kind Hands, trying to help t ...more
This will be a DNF for me. I feel like the blurb is completely misleading. The "Prologue" takes place 20 years in the future -- a reporter at the Vatican muses on the possibility of a female Pope, and then the scene shifts to a mother getting her daughter ready for Easter Sunday services and the sudden realization that this mother is the female Priest the reporter was thinking of. So . . . really, a very good start!
The book proper then starts in "present day". She's 27/28, a doctor with a foreig ...more
It seems like everyone is reading Patterson, and I like faith-based boos, so I added this to my library wishlist based on title and author alone. Honestly, if I had read the blurb, I'd likely have passed. Indeed, I wish I had. Admittedly, I am not Roman Catholic. As a Christian, I found this offensive at multiple points, particularly when so-called men and women of God who claim to serve him were sitting around the table mocking and laughing at Bible verses from the pens of Paul and Timothy.

This is about a girl that just wanted to help people and do good work in Gods name. It was cute and had some nice messages throughout.
