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. Some followers are ecstatic, but the leading candidate has made a legion of powerful enemies. From a difficult childhood with drug addled parents, to a career as a doctor on the front lines in Sudan, to a series of trials that test her faith at every turn, Brigid Fitzgerald's convictions and callings have made her the target of all those who fear that the Church has lost its way--dangerous adversaries who abhor challenges to tradition. Locked in a deadly, high-stakes battle with forces determined to undermine everything she believes in, Brigid must convert her enemies to her cause before she loses her faith...and her life....

Woman of God Reviews
Woman of God
This was an amazing book and certainly not what I was expecting. I have never read anything like this from James Patterson before and it was a breath of fresh air. I've always enjoyed the books that Maxine Paetro was the co author with James Patterson and I'm sure that she deserves most of the credit for this book. I'm going to look her up and give her books a read.
*5/5 STARS* (If I could rate this even higher, I would)
Woman of God by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro is nothing short of amazing. I began this book with high expectations and ready to read an unexpected story because it seemed like nothing James Patterson has ever released before. I'm happy to report that my expectations were exceeded by a long shot. Brigid Fitzgerald has left a lasting impression on me and is now one of my top favorite female characters in a novel of ALL TIME. I am a reg ...more
I really enjoyed this book although it was very horrific in parts. Brigid was an amazingly strong woman who suffered great loss in her adult hood but was also deprived of love as a child. Her parents were (somewhat) functioning well educated drug addicts and her father was extremely harsh and demanding. Her mother did instil a love of the Church and God when Brigid was a child. She became a doctor and worked in Africa in harsh and war torn areas and came across the most horrifying abuse by milit ...more
Can I just say how much I absolutely loved this book and needed to read it at the exact moment I did? No matter what religion you are...we all have faith. Sometimes in the hardest times of our lives that faith is tested. When the bad times come we either cling to out faith or lose it all together. Finding it again is a journey.
I'm looking at the other ratings and wondering if I read the same book.
I didn't like Woman of God. I would not like it on a boat I would not like it with a goat.
It was a very silly story with absolutely no character development or descriptive language. I was unable to identify with any of the characters. The plot was melodramatic and soppy.
A female doctor, working in a war torn part of Sudan finds love. Loses love. Becomes part of an egalitarian pseudo Catholic Church and ultimately is a cont ...more
"They had captured a hundred and twenty-nine children. They castrated the boys and left them to bleed to death. They had gang-raped the little girls before killing them. Little boys who had been unable to run were roped together, and their throats had been slit," so writes Patterson/Paetro on page 119 of this, a torture porn book sold under the pretense of a woman finding faith. And even worse, far more torturous, scenes have appeared in earlier pages. Okay, now, about the writing itself, get th ...more
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?
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
