When Sara, whose Aramaic name means ‘bringer
of happiness,’ wakes up in Sarah-Marie, a young Cathar girl from Montségur, she
believes it is her destiny to rescue her from the 13th Century siege. By
saving Sarah-Marie, Sara hopes to safeguard her mother’s gospel. In this
odyssey of death, destiny, and soul’s purpose, we join Sara as she heeds her
call, journeying from Jerusalem to Egypt to Crete until arriving in France.
Narrated by the daughter of Mary Magdalene, the
Bringer of Happiness delves into ideologies, beliefs, and heresies,
culminating in the 13th Century massacre of the Cathars at Montségur. As our
histories become unstuck, the patterns of power through religion are shifting,
making way for new narratives. This book is part of this process.
The Bringer of Happiness is a compelling
(almost) true tale comprised of history, myth, and imagination.
