Two women, two millennia apart, with seemingly unconnected lives – one from the English Lake District and the other from Bethany in Palestine. Neither is sure of their role or purpose, which leaves in them feelings of emptiness and uncertainty.
Martha of Bethany has Yeshua as friend and guide. From a place of tenderness and intimacy, she witnesses the last three years of his life and sees him embody the mystery and power of love. This leads her on a journey to the Sacred Isles where she finds her own pathway to awakening.
Martha from Borrowdale’s story begins in 2000 AD as she faces challenges that expose her deepest fears and insecurities. With her partner Ben, she discovers the mystical Aramaic teachings of Yeshua that offer her a pathway to Self-realisation and freedom. These two redemptive stories weave alongside each other until finally they converge. It is a tale of revelation and mystery that uplifts and transforms.
A Note From the Publisher
"It is hard to describe this book...it feels so intimate and yet so vast. Reading it felt like opening a doorway and shining a soft light upon the most secret, sacred part of myself. The part that whispers to me at unexpected times. The part that I hush, as though it has no place in my day to day life.The yearning locked away there was breathed back to life through these beautiful images of love, loyalty, courage and Truth. The power of the teachings of Yeshua, rooted in the Aramaic language and rural landscape of his home, is palpable in each scene he inhabits and the perfume of his loving presence lingered long after I read the final page.I didn't want it to end."
"The Mystery of Martha is a beautifully written book - a wonderful story that once you start, you just want to keep reading right until the end. The descriptions take you on a journey spanning 2 lifetimes and you are with the characters at every turn of the page. It is a brilliant achievement, thank you for sharing this book with the world."
"A beautifully written story of the two Martha’s. The Martha of today and the Martha who lived 2000 years ago, and the spiritual link between them. Written in two contrasting styles, it highlights the different life paths we all tread.Inspiring and thought provoking."
"A beautifully written book that is both intriguing and challenging. Life changing and Life affirming. I would recommend it to anyone who is on a journey with life and love."
"Truly a remarkable story that is quick paced and keeps you hooked. The heart of the book addresses the often unexamined feelings of low self worth, guilt and shame and how Love (capital L) knits us back together. The messages of the Beatitudes in Aramaic are very different from the standard teaching and is fascinating. Leaves you with a warm, inspired feeling."
