Uplifting, even for those who aren't devoutly religious. I'm not a churchgoer, but I still found this story of faith, redemption, and forgiveness to be uplifting.
The story of Mary Madison is intended as a modern-day parable of Mary Magdalene, and the healing power of God's love.
It's a sad, at time heartbreaking tale that ends with God's forgiveness and mercy. Overall, enjoyable.
Fabulous story - very moving, but NOT for young adults.
Karen Kingsbury is such a fabulous writer. I get so lost in her books. This story is one of the best I have ever read. You may even see yourself through this book.
This is the BEST Karen Kingsbury book I've read so far. It definitely doesn't go along like her other books usually do but it is so, so powerful and very well written. I read it in two days, mostly because at certain parts I had to put the book down for a few minutes and just walk away.
There are parts of this book that will make you smile...parts that will make you long for people to connect...parts that will make you feel like you're right there living the story with the characters...parts that make you want to yell and cry...and parts that will completely break your heart.
Thankfully, it can mend...but you'll have to read the book to see how.
All I can say is WOW. Karen does it again!
