Jamie and Mary Magdalene is Jaap Ramijer’s debut novel, a unique and highly imaginative spiritual tale for young and old, told in Jaap’s very personal style. A young boy, gentle and caring, lives contentedly in the spirit world until he is summoned by The Elders to return to Earth for a special new life. Born on a farm in southern France in the first century AD, his life is idyllic. But when he ventures into the wider world, he soon learns the dark side of human nature. Many adventures follow, both delightful and tragic, until at last he meets a very special woman, Mary Magdalene, and discovers his life true purpose. The beautiful story brings to life both historical and mythological events, while gently teaching us the spiritual meaningfulness of our human lives.
