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.

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 that will make you long for people to that will make you feel like you're right there living the story with the 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.

This book was hard to read because it touches on subjects that are difficult to read about. It is done so well that you can easily forget it is fiction. I highly recommend this book.

This is a very touching book. Especially for anyone who has had an addiction and is trying to find their way to god. A must read book!
