The Stolen Gospels (2011)

Lori Vale, a rebellious teen, is thrust into the middle of a violent religious conflict when her mother is murdered, and the girl is taken to a fortress in an ancient Greek monastery. There, a group of radical women is creating an earthshaking religious text. The Holy Women’s Bible will include the Old and New Testaments, edited to alter gospels that are detrimental to the interests of women, such as passages asserting that they should obey their husbands, remain silent in churches, and suffer the burden of Eve’s sins.

The Lost Apostles (2011)

Long ago, the ancient gospels of Jesus’s female apostles were stolen by powerful churchmen and relegated to the rubbish heaps of history. But those apostles have been reborn as female children, and are dictating new gospels that will be incorporated into a radical new religious text, the Holy Women’s Bible.

At a hidden women’s fortress in Greece, the teenager Lori Vale develops a paranormal relationship with one of the reincarnated children, and soon begins to suspect that she may have been connected to the female apostles of Jesus in ancient times.
