This is a strange book--a quick read, basically a modern setting for the Bible's story of the Virgin Mary. She is 14, and is pregnant without having had intercourse; she develops a following and performs healings. Quite an interesting retelling of the tale...by its end, the reader is left wondering if it is divinity or madness...

An interesting book about a teenager who "finds herself in the center of a storm of fervent belief and doubt" (<--from the back of the book). Told from multiple points of view, with a fairly solid plot. I enjoyed this book.

This was an ok read - not totally engrossing, but not boring enough to leave unfinished.

The author shows in this book how we all are looking for something more in this life and the hope of life beyond this. Francesca is a likeable character who begins to believe that she is special if not saintly. I found the book to be very entertaining and would recommend to all readers who enjoy the works of Jodi Picoult, Jane Hamilton, etc.

This book had some great twists and turns! An unexpected death, a cult-like following, and an enormous revelation about ones self. I did like the personality the author out into the characters, if some were a bit stereotypical. It was a fun, fast read, and I would maybe read it again, on a specifically rainy day. I would recommend.

A town believes that a young girl is the Virgin Mary because a homeless man thinks he sees her hovering above him. Very touching!

The story of a girl who becomes divine and then utterly helplessly human all within a year. It's a tale of possibilities and deception; selfishness and redemption.

Really wonderfully done.
