This is anovel about the return of Mary Magdalene at the end of time.

It tells of her final incarnationasa young woman named Jenna who is born with a birthmark over her forehead shaped like the continent of Africa. Jennaisirreligious and tough, andunhappily immersed in the corporate world. Unbidden, she starts to have dreams and visions of a time with Christ, andthey become soreal that she crosses through time tofind herself weeping at hisfeetduringthecrucifixion.

This is also a story about the Cathars in the Languedoc area of France. The Cathars embraced the idea of reincarnation. For this, andfor theirbelief indirect revelation and a dualistic universe of good and evil, theywere destroyedby the Catholic Church in the 13th century. In the process, their society was destroyed too as town after town was mercilessly razed by the crusaders andthousands put to death: men, women and children, none were spared. This became known as the first western genocide of Christian against Christian. Because of theCathars, the Church gave birth to the Inquisition.

The Cathars loved Mary Magdalene, andbelievedthat she was the beloved of Christ and the keeper of his teachings. Their story is interwoven with the Knights Templar who were embedded in the Languedoc, and with Jenna's ongoing odyssey as she comes to full awareness ofwho she is.

Ultimately, this is a story about love that does not depend on time.

It is also a warning about the end of time.
