Jesus' wife — the novel

IN PROGRESS: Sue Monk Kidd Writing Novel on 'Jesus' Wife, Ana' (MICHAEL GRYBOSKI, The Christian Post)
Best-selling novelist Sue Monk Kidd is working on a book that will take place during the first century, and is expected to feature a married Jesus of Nazareth.

The author of such notable novels as The Secret Life of Bees and The Invention of Wings is working on a story whose narrator will be the wife of the Messiah.

"Monk has given the book the working title Ana, the Wife of Jesus. A release date hasn't been set," reported The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The CP article also places the announcement of recent stories (Dan Brown, Gospel of Jesus' Wife) pertaining to "Jesus' wife." She is very famous, considering that there is no historical evidence that she ever existed.
