Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Connell, the author of many prior books about Mary, here offers one that, but for the dates of the events and apparitions described, might have been written 100 years ago. A capable and persuasive writer, she takes the conservative and literalist Catholic line, moving swiftly away from the Mary of the Scriptures to the post-Scriptural Mother and comforter. Connell fervently embraces not only medieval and post-medieval Marian mysticism but 19th- through 21st-century apparitions. VERDICT While she may well disappoint readers of China Galland's Longing for Darkness: Black Madonna or Marina Warner's Alone of All Her Sex: The Myth and the Cult of the Virgin Mary, she will please a now somewhat neglected constituency of traditional Catholic readers.

    Highly Recommended!

    This book is very nice for Catholics and non-catholics alike. Beautiful detail of pictures of the Blessed Virgin Mary inside. Full of detail and information not only about Mary, but also about her son Jesus Christ and what we mean to both of them. This book has amazing true stories about people throughout the world and throughout the centuries who have encountered Mary [and Jesus] in their lives. It doesnt matter what background and/or religion you come from, I recommend this book for EVERYONE. I am glad I read this book and if you read it, you will be glad too. Highly recommended!

    Spectacular Woman

    Mary is a spectacular woman who comes alive in the pages of this book,offering a light-filled approach to God in daily living. I began reading The Secrets of Mary on a plane and actually took a vacation day from work to finish it. Now I re-read portions of the book as often as possible. Mary's Secrets offer a clear view of her Son's Gospel in today's world. The stories in the book are hugh guides for decisions we face every day. Each reading of Mary's Secrets is filled, as the book says, ..."with prizes and surprises." I highly recommend this book for serious seekers.
