Pregnant with Jesus’s posthumous child, Maeve becomes a mother on the lam (with the Virgin Mary in tow) when the early church fathers decide she is not fit to raise the savior’s scion. Maeve’s adventures take her from the wilds of Galatia (where she raises her daughter till she runs away after a disastrous encounter with St. Paul) to the sophisticated port city of Ephesus where Maeve is reunited with her daughter—a lesbian pirate. The pair goes on to create their enduring legends in Southern France.
