Porter Square Books welcomes author CATHERINE MAGIA for a reading of The Fisherman’s Bride. Often times, religious study focuses on the men of Christianity. In this untold story of the woman behind the First Apostle, we see the journey of the fabled life of the unnamed wife who supports her husband through leaps and bounds.
Cast off by her family after shunning a wealthy suitor to marry a humble fisherman, her life is fraught with hardship. She endures her husband’s growing restlessness, fish shortages from the Sea of Galilee, and the oppression of an all-powerful Roman Empire over her people. Then her life is forever changed when her dying mother is saved by a miracle performed by a young carpenter—a man who speaks with understanding and acts with compassion. A man who can inspire the extraordinary.
