    *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 b...

    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 sometim...

    James Patterson and Maxine Paetro have given us another solid hit with Woman of God! This is definitely not the typical James Patterson novel with all the mystery and crime. This is an inspiring story about one woman whose faith has been tested over and over again. It's about tragedy, ...

    In all honesty, this is one of the best books I've ever read. The female protagonist's tenacious pursuit of faith amidst extreme adversities (literally one after the next) moved me to tears, which doesn't usually happen from fictional characters. I've not met a braver female character ...

    The Patterson-Paetro partnership returns with a one-off novel that seeks to explore faith, religion, and the strength in both that one woman possesses in the modern world. Brigid Fitzgerald has been working in South Sudan, serving as a doctor and trauma surgeon in a war-torn corner of ...

    This poor woman has more tragedies in her life than Job! Just totally over the top and unbelievable. Reading the blurb made me think this was going to be a book about a woman pope - NOT. Another odd religious book by Patterson. ...

    (some spoilers!!) WOW!! Woman of God, is an extraodinary read, testing a person's faith through thick and thin, there were times when reading this and thinking, 'how can all this happen to one person', being a doctor in south Sudan at 'kind hearts' and seeing all of the death and d...

    I just do not know how to rate or review this book. Hell, I do even know how I felt about this book. I did not get engrossed in the story but it was not a bad story. I think I just did not connect with it or the characters as much as I would have liked to. It is still a James Patterson...

    "They had captured a hundred and twenty-nine children. They castrated the boys and left them to bleed to death. They had gang-raped the little girls before killing them. Little boys who had been unable to run were roped together, and their throats had been slit," so writes Patterson/Pa...

    This was unlike the usual Patterson books I've read. It was suspense and mystery with a message. However, at the end of it, I was wondering if that overall message was really strong enough. Brigid Fitzgerald seems to encounter difficult situations (to put it mildly) at almost every ...

    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 th...

    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, s...

    Woman of God This was an amazing book and certainly not what I was expecting. I have never read anything like this from James Patterson before and it was a breath of fresh air. I've always enjoyed the books that Maxine Paetro was the co author with James Patterson and I'm sure that ...

    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...

    This is a side of James Patterson that demonstrates his ability to traverse in many genres. This time the author explores faith from the Catholic church. Even as I'm writing this review, I'm getting goosebumps as I prepare to give you a synopsis from my point of view. Bridget Fitzg...

    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? T...

    This is about a girl that just wanted to help people and do good work in Gods name. It was cute and had some nice messages throughout. ...

    Very (& surprisingly IMO) good story! ...

    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 ...

    Brigid Fitzgerald is a remarkable woman. She graduated from college at 19 years of age. Determined to make something of her life and leave her addicted parents behind, she volunteered as a doctor in a clinic called Kind Hands in South Sudan, a very dangerous and poor part of the worl...

    I do not even have the energy to write a review of this book, My first James Patterson book, and boy was it a doozy. I mean I like a little edge to my books, but, I do not want to be in agony through every step of the book. I'm a highly, highly sensitive person so things always affect ...

    I really did not like it in fact I pretty much hated it. If it wouldn't have been such an easy read-remember Patterson's books have chapters all of 1 1/2 pages long-I doubt I would have finished it. I finished it thinking will get better, the ending will have some some huge exciting su...

    I'm looking at the other ratings and wondering if I read the same book. I didn't like Woman of God. I would not like it on a boat I would not like it with a goat. It was a very silly story with absolutely no character development or descriptive language. I was unable to identify wi...

    This will be a DNF for me. I feel like the blurb is completely misleading. The "Prologue" takes place 20 years in the future -- a reporter at the Vatican muses on the possibility of a female Pope, and then the scene shifts to a mother getting her daughter ready for Easter Sunday servic...

    Not sure how to categorize this one. Anyway, Patterson and Paetro take on the Catholic church and its stand on women. I'm not a Catholic but I have friends who are. They moan about the fact that women can't be priests and other issues. Patterson uses the story of Brigid to show how a w...

    Can I just say how much I absolutely loved this book and needed to read it at the exact moment I did? No matter what religion you are...we all have faith. Sometimes in the hardest times of our lives that faith is tested. When the bad times come we either cling to out faith or lose it a...

    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 bo...

    I borrowed this book from my local library. I enjoyed reading it. It had a good story to it. I liked the variety of characters in it and how they were involved with the story. ...

    Completely different from any other Patterson I have read. Somewhat over the top, but an interesting plot, with ideals I could totally get behind. ...

    I do not even have the energy to write a review of this book, My first James Patterson book, and boy was it a doozy. I mean I like a little edge to my books, but, I do not want to be in agony through every step of the book. I'm a highly, highly sensitive person so things always affect ...

    I really did not like it in fact I pretty much hated it. If it wouldn't have been such an easy read-remember Patterson's books have chapters all of 1 1/2 pages long-I doubt I would have finished it. I finished it thinking will get better, the ending will have some some huge exciting su...

    I'm looking at the other ratings and wondering if I read the same book. I didn't like Woman of God. I would not like it on a boat I would not like it with a goat. It was a very silly story with absolutely no character development or descriptive language. I was unable to identify wi...

    This will be a DNF for me. I feel like the blurb is completely misleading. The "Prologue" takes place 20 years in the future -- a reporter at the Vatican muses on the possibility of a female Pope, and then the scene shifts to a mother getting her daughter ready for Easter Sunday servic...

    Not sure how to categorize this one. Anyway, Patterson and Paetro take on the Catholic church and its stand on women. I'm not a Catholic but I have friends who are. They moan about the fact that women can't be priests and other issues. Patterson uses the story of Brigid to show how a w...

    *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 b...

    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 sometim...

    James Patterson and Maxine Paetro have given us another solid hit with Woman of God! This is definitely not the typical James Patterson novel with all the mystery and crime. This is an inspiring story about one woman whose faith has been tested over and over again. It's about tragedy, ...

    In all honesty, this is one of the best books I've ever read. The female protagonist's tenacious pursuit of faith amidst extreme adversities (literally one after the next) moved me to tears, which doesn't usually happen from fictional characters. I've not met a braver female character ...

    The Patterson-Paetro partnership returns with a one-off novel that seeks to explore faith, religion, and the strength in both that one woman possesses in the modern world. Brigid Fitzgerald has been working in South Sudan, serving as a doctor and trauma surgeon in a war-torn corner of ...

    This poor woman has more tragedies in her life than Job! Just totally over the top and unbelievable. Reading the blurb made me think this was going to be a book about a woman pope - NOT. Another odd religious book by Patterson. ...

    (some spoilers!!) WOW!! Woman of God, is an extraodinary read, testing a person's faith through thick and thin, there were times when reading this and thinking, 'how can all this happen to one person', being a doctor in south Sudan at 'kind hearts' and seeing all of the death and d...

    I just do not know how to rate or review this book. Hell, I do even know how I felt about this book. I did not get engrossed in the story but it was not a bad story. I think I just did not connect with it or the characters as much as I would have liked to. It is still a James Patterson...

    "They had captured a hundred and twenty-nine children. They castrated the boys and left them to bleed to death. They had gang-raped the little girls before killing them. Little boys who had been unable to run were roped together, and their throats had been slit," so writes Patterson/Pa...

    This was unlike the usual Patterson books I've read. It was suspense and mystery with a message. However, at the end of it, I was wondering if that overall message was really strong enough. Brigid Fitzgerald seems to encounter difficult situations (to put it mildly) at almost every ...

    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 th...

    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 bo...

    I borrowed this book from my local library. I enjoyed reading it. It had a good story to it. I liked the variety of characters in it and how they were involved with the story. ...

    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 sometim...

    James Patterson and Maxine Paetro have given us another solid hit with Woman of God! This is definitely not the typical James Patterson novel with all the mystery and crime. This is an inspiring story about one woman whose faith has been tested over and over again. It's about tragedy, ...

    In all honesty, this is one of the best books I've ever read. The female protagonist's tenacious pursuit of faith amidst extreme adversities (literally one after the next) moved me to tears, which doesn't usually happen from fictional characters. I've not met a braver female character ...

    The Patterson-Paetro partnership returns with a one-off novel that seeks to explore faith, religion, and the strength in both that one woman possesses in the modern world. Brigid Fitzgerald has been working in South Sudan, serving as a doctor and trauma surgeon in a war-torn corner of ...

    This poor woman has more tragedies in her life than Job! Just totally over the top and unbelievable. Reading the blurb made me think this was going to be a book about a woman pope - NOT. Another odd religious book by Patterson. ...

    (some spoilers!!) WOW!! Woman of God, is an extraodinary read, testing a person's faith through thick and thin, there were times when reading this and thinking, 'how can all this happen to one person', being a doctor in south Sudan at 'kind hearts' and seeing all of the death and d...

    I just do not know how to rate or review this book. Hell, I do even know how I felt about this book. I did not get engrossed in the story but it was not a bad story. I think I just did not connect with it or the characters as much as I would have liked to. It is still a James Patterson...

    "They had captured a hundred and twenty-nine children. They castrated the boys and left them to bleed to death. They had gang-raped the little girls before killing them. Little boys who had been unable to run were roped together, and their throats had been slit," so writes Patterson/Pa...

    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? T...

    (some spoilers!!) WOW!! Woman of God, is an extraodinary read, testing a person's faith through thick and thin, there were times when reading this and thinking, 'how can all this happen to one person', being a doctor in south Sudan at 'kind hearts' and seeing all of the death and d...

    I just do not know how to rate or review this book. Hell, I do even know how I felt about this book. I did not get engrossed in the story but it was not a bad story. I think I just did not connect with it or the characters as much as I would have liked to. It is still a James Patterson...

    "They had captured a hundred and twenty-nine children. They castrated the boys and left them to bleed to death. They had gang-raped the little girls before killing them. Little boys who had been unable to run were roped together, and their throats had been slit," so writes Patterson/Pa...

    This was unlike the usual Patterson books I've read. It was suspense and mystery with a message. However, at the end of it, I was wondering if that overall message was really strong enough. Brigid Fitzgerald seems to encounter difficult situations (to put it mildly) at almost every ...

    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 th...

    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, s...

    Woman of God This was an amazing book and certainly not what I was expecting. I have never read anything like this from James Patterson before and it was a breath of fresh air. I've always enjoyed the books that Maxine Paetro was the co author with James Patterson and I'm sure that ...

    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? T...

    This is about a girl that just wanted to help people and do good work in Gods name. It was cute and had some nice messages throughout. ...

    Very (& surprisingly IMO) good story! ...

    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 ...

    I do not even have the energy to write a review of this book, My first James Patterson book, and boy was it a doozy. I mean I like a little edge to my books, but, I do not want to be in agony through every step of the book. I'm a highly, highly sensitive person so things always affect ...

    I really did not like it in fact I pretty much hated it. If it wouldn't have been such an easy read-remember Patterson's books have chapters all of 1 1/2 pages long-I doubt I would have finished it. I finished it thinking will get better, the ending will have some some huge exciting su...

    I'm looking at the other ratings and wondering if I read the same book. I didn't like Woman of God. I would not like it on a boat I would not like it with a goat. It was a very silly story with absolutely no character development or descriptive language. I was unable to identify wi...

    This will be a DNF for me. I feel like the blurb is completely misleading. The "Prologue" takes place 20 years in the future -- a reporter at the Vatican muses on the possibility of a female Pope, and then the scene shifts to a mother getting her daughter ready for Easter Sunday servic...

    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 sometim...

    Not sure how to categorize this one. Anyway, Patterson and Paetro take on the Catholic church and its stand on women. I'm not a Catholic but I have friends who are. They moan about the fact that women can't be priests and other issues. Patterson uses the story of Brigid to show how a w...

    Can I just say how much I absolutely loved this book and needed to read it at the exact moment I did? No matter what religion you are...we all have faith. Sometimes in the hardest times of our lives that faith is tested. When the bad times come we either cling to out faith or lose it a...

    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 bo...
