This title shares a similarity of subject matter with THE DA VINCI CODE--the possibility of a Gospel written by Christ's wife and apostle, Mary Magdalene. But THE EXPECTED ONE takes a different approach. As read by Linda Emond, this story of a Magdalene descendant, writer Maureen Paschal, is certainly a spiritual quest. But it deals with the inner lives of the characters rather than focusing on a physical search for evidence. Emond's approach is low-key; her command of accents (American, French, Scots, Italian, and Irish) is never permitted to upstage the characters. The author's claim to be a Magdalene descendant and her afterword add further interest. C.E.W. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
