‘Girl Mary’ – noul roman al scriitorului Petru Popescu

de (14-10-2008)

A hauntingly beautiful novel, bringing to life history’s most mysterious character, Mary of Nazareth, as a beautiful, complicated, utterly believable girl in love.

In a bestselling tradition: Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist, Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent, Francois Mauriac’s A Kiss to the Leper, or Orson Scott Card’s Sarah, all retell biblical themes through the sensibilities of today. Girl Mary will similarly captivate readers of all faiths and backgrounds.

Great character: For centuries now, Mary has been the Virgin – but isn’t she also
the ultimate female, whose life and passion were never told? Utterly new in concept,
Girl Mary introduces us to the human girl who beguiled even God with her simplicity.

So what exactly is Girl Mary? Answers the author: it’s a love story of biblical proportions.

Great storytelling: Petru Popescu recounts this epic through the eyes of famous characters. Pontius Pilate, already Rome’s agent in Judea at the time, meets Mary and falls under her spell. Years before the massacre of the innocents, King Herod senses
that Mary signals the end of his reign. Other heroes of the scriptures appear in
GIRL MARY at their very debut in history. Described with surreal accurateness,
Judea and Rome become the birthplace of Christianity.

Petru Popescu was Romania’s leading young author when he immigrated to the
United States in 1974. He has distinguished himself as the New York Times bestselling author of the novels Amazon Beaming and Almost Adam, and the critically acclaimed
memoirs The Return and The Oasis. Petru Popescu lives in Beverly Hills, California, with his wife Iris and children Chloe and Adam.
