I would really love to read a fictional account of Jesus' life as told by his mother. I've searched all over, with no luck so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Melody Carlson wrote one called "My Son the Savior"

Here's the description from Christianbook.com:

"Did you ever wonder what Mary felt when she learned she was to carry God's son and watched Jesus grow into a man? A fictional depiction into the life of Mary, the mother of Christ, "My Son, the Savior" describes the worry, joy, love, fear, faith, and hope that Mary could have felt as she watched her only son be worshiped by the masses, only to be ultimately crucified. Being able to imagine Mary's emotions will give any reader a deeper appreciation for many of the Biblical stories, and is also a novel that any mother can appreciate."
