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
*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
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
Completely different to the usual James Patterson offerings. No mystery/thriller here. Just a wonderful story about a remarkable woman who has her faith in God (and life) tested repeatedly by the most diabolical and tragic events. And yet, despite the adversity that is thrown at her, she has a strength and determination to not only survive, but a hope and a determination to make the world a better place. Inspirational.
This is an advance read of James Patterson's new book Woman of God. Completely different from any of my previous experiences with his books. I was enthralled with the concept of the book, the front story of the first woman considered for the position of Pope, but it was so much more than that. It follows Brigid Fitzgerald through life altering experiences that mold her into a deep spiritual relationship. The story explores her awareness of her personal relation with God, and makes one consider t ...more
A Woman of God, James Patterson, Maxine Paetro, authors; Therese Plummer, narrator
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
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
2.0 out of 5 stars -- A test of faith. A HUGE test.
OK this woman had it so much worse than Job of the Bible. At first it was hard to see her go through the tragedies, but then it got to be WAY TOO MUCH. I often get suckered in to requesting a book based on the synopsis, but sometimes the actual story is nothing like what was written in the publicity materials. As it is here.
I thought this novel was going to be about a woman Pope. NOT. So ignore the blurb. This is about a woman doctor, a humanita ...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?
