The book was good, but most Jewish girls didn't narried that young. Most of them married around mid teen years. And only the Babylonian Jewish men married at 18.

Absolutely Fantastic
Very readable and to the point. Lots of references scripture and early church fathers. I wanted to summarize each chapter and found my notes were basically the same length as the text. As a Protestant I found this invaluable in understanding Marian devotion.
