Durante siglos, han mentido y asesinado para ocultar la verdad sobre María Magdalena.

Ahora, el evangelio que ella escribió amenaza de nuevo a la iglesia.

Y solo otra mujer excepcional puede sacarlo a la luz: La Esperada.

El FonoLibro se enorgullece presentar, el audiolibro en el español del bestseller La Esperada de Kathleen McGowan, quien se dice es descendiente de la unión entre Jesús y María Magdalena.

En las calles de Jerusalén, en busca de documentación para su libro, Maureen empieza a tener extrañas visiones, ve a una mujer vestida con una túnica roja. Esa es solo una de las señales que la empujan hacia la búsqueda del misterio de María Magdalena. Con ayuda de su primo y sacerdote, Peter, Maureen viaja al sur de Francia, tierra donde María Magdalena fue a morir y donde sigue vivo el legado de los cátaros. Al llegar Maureen conoce al millonario y excéntrico Sinclair quien le revela la existencia de una línea de sangre que incluye a Juana de Arco, Arturo de Inglaterra, Lucrecia Borgia...y llega hasta ella: La Esperada. Una bomba de tiempo contra las bases del Vaticano, un tesoro que puede cambiar la historia Cristiana. Un texto por el cual muchos han muerto por preservarlo y por el cual otros están dispuestos a seguir matando para destruirlo.

FonoLibro presenta en una magnifica producción con una maravillosa música la historia que a través de los siglos varios han muerto para proteger el secreto de La Esperada.

    " it's approach to religion, the author takes us on a fiction or reality, we are believed or not. It's still read and you maybe like me in libo "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bluediamond | 2/12/2014

    " Interesting concept -shame about the writing style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/9/2014

    " I loved this book. It makes you think. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna Cerame | 1/27/2014

    " Compelling tale of life of Jesus & Mary Magdalene, leading up to and after the crucifixion and of the Magdalene continuing the teachings. The book weaves the story lines of present day descendants with those of Jesus and Mary, and what they deal with in keeping the teachings alive against all odds. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peg B. | 1/23/2014

    " Liked it...read this book with an open mind. There was a lot to think about, "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette | 1/17/2014

    " This is the incredible story of a young woman named Maureen who is compelled by dreams and visions to seek out the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, and the resulting dangers because of her search. Written in such a way that you feel you're in Maureen's place as she discovers the answers she's seeking. Very compelling read. Immediately wanted to know more about Mary Magdalene's role in the life of Jesus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 1/13/2014

    " I enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the finding & reading the rest of the trilogy. I would akin this to DaVinci Code or Angels & Demons but without nearly as much action. A very good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynn Dolven | 1/13/2014

    " This is a "poor man's" Da Vinci Code. The writing isn't as good and the plot has some obvious flaws - how wide spread was writing in the first century A.D.? I liked the series by Marion Zimmer Bradley (The Mists of Avalon) much better and she also had a feminist perspective, as this authors tries to represent. Part of the problem is that I find the plot to be incredible - I don't believe that Mary Magdelene was the wife of John the Baptist and bore him a son, and then become the wife of Jesus and bore him two children. I found the plot of Pope Joan to be more realistic, although I think it is fiction too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrice | 1/13/2014

    " I love this book and the sequel, The Book of Love, so much that i am re-reading it right now! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angelica Taggart | 11/19/2013

    " I enjoyed this book tremendously -- tho written as fiction, there are many things that rang true for me.. it's about a journalist who is drawn into the Mary Magdalene legends. I'm looking forward to McGowan's next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 10/19/2013

    " Not nearly as good as it could have been. The writing was rather wooden and the characters didn't come alive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Davina | 10/17/2013

    " An interesting story with some new angles. Not as action packed as expected. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Veronica | 9/26/2013

    " Excellent story line, the characters were strong and the author really pulls you in to the book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 8/27/2013

    " Yes, this was a lot like The DaVinci Code, but I like books like that. It was a lightweight, easy read, and I found it diverting and amusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Schmitt | 10/15/2012

    " Similar to DaVinci code "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Nesbitt | 9/28/2012

    " This was a very interesting book, along the lines of the Di Vinci Code with quite a lot of historical research incorporated. I certainly enjoyed not only the character development but all of the regional and religious history included. I definitely want to read her next book - The Book of Love. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikaylah Brooke Hansen | 9/8/2012

    " Marvelous! Gripping, intriguing, mysterious and captivating! I'm not quite sure after my researching if everything is logical, but even if not, this was an enjoyable book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Kelley | 8/6/2012

    " Truly unexpected! Wow! This made me really ponder what I know about the events surrounding the Savior's life. Very touching at times. Worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/3/2012

    " This novel about Mary Magdalene is too long and a bit predictable. Listen to it on cd rather than read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn Freed | 3/23/2012

    " history is what happened not what is written down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 8/18/2011

    " Think DaVinci Code meets the bible. It's really 2 stories in one and do not miss the authors notes in the back. It really makes the whole book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki Turner | 6/22/2011

    " A wonderful insight to the oldest story ever written!! Kathleen weaves her truth throughout this book and it is a real eye opener to the world that has been written about, by man, for such a long time... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey | 4/22/2011

    " Similar to The Eight by Katharine Neville. Check it out. Now there is a sequel out called "The book of love". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ryan Zimmerman | 4/21/2011

    " Possible the only genre worse than pseudo-historical fiction is pseudo-religious-historical fiction, in particular anything centering about the life of Joshua of Nazareth (The Christ). This book gets a 2 only because it is very well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 faeriecrone | 4/20/2011

    " I loved The DaVinci Code. This book is better, much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 4/18/2011

    " Not nearly as good as it could have been. The writing was rather wooden and the characters didn't come alive. "

    " I enjoyed this book tremendously -- tho written as fiction, there are many things that rang true for me.. it's about a journalist who is drawn into the Mary Magdalene legends. I'm looking forward to McGowan's next book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 3/15/2011

    " I love any book that celebrates red heads and mythology or religion. Add to that McGowan's ability to move seamlessly from current day to ancient times and you've got a real treat. Don't forget mystery, intrigue and romance. A great (quick) read from start to finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 3/9/2011

    " Wow - what an intriguing new perspective on the Origins of Jesus and Mary... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shari | 3/7/2011

    " I was really excited about this book as I am interested in the role of women in the Christian, especially Catholic faith. It reminds me of the fast pace and excitement of the Dan Brown books. Knowing it was the first in a trilogy, I looked forward to the sequels. uh oh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louis Daniele | 3/6/2011

    " The Expected One is a novel for all women. Women that was misunderstood, like Mary Magdalene. This novel have similarities with The Da Vinci Code. But I find it less offending when it comes to religious aspects. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Delene | 2/4/2011

    " I thoroughly enjoyed these books. I Love novels in historical settings. The chapter that pertained to the week of the crucifixion of Jesus was very moving! "
