The wife of the late Rev. Jerry Falwell has written a book recounting the half-century she spent with the Moral Majority founder.

Macel Falwell's book, "Jerry Falwell: His Life and Legacy," is set for release on May 15 — the first anniversary of Falwell's death at age 73.

Macel Falwell told The News & Advance of Lynchburg, Va., that she has been working on the book since September.

Jonathan Falwell describes his mother as a "behind-the-scenes person." He says her book will relate her experiences with his father and tell of the founding of Thomas Road Baptist Church.
