"Raised in a wealthy family in Sepphoris with ties to the ruler of Galilee, [Ana] is rebellious and ambitious, a relentless seeker with a brilliant, curious mind and a daring spirit ... Defying the expectations placed on women, she engages in furtive scholarly pursuits and writes secret narratives about neglected and silenced women. When she meets the eighteen-year-old Jesus, each is drawn to and enriched by the other's spiritual and philosophical ideas. He becomes a floodgate for her intellect, but also the awakener of her heart. Their marriage unfolds with love and conflict, humor and pathos in Nazareth, where Ana makes a home with Jesus, his brothers James and Simon, and their mother Mary."
