Unlike the other people who have posted so far, I have read the book When Mary-Margaret, a well-meaning but slow young woman, sees a vision of Jesus’ blood in a Roman Catholic Church, she stimulates a miracle-craze which compels many people to question the meaning of faith. This is a very difficult book for me to review because I’m rather ambivalent about it. It is deep with meaning—but would mean something different to the “faithful” than it would to the “faithless.” This is a quality that few books attain, and I believe this is why it deserved to be nominated for the Orange Prize. However, this story is also very sad…it took me in a direction I didn’t expect. There were a lot of negative messages mixed in with the positive messages, which, I suppose, represents life perfectly. But still…some of it was hard for me to read. I would recommend this book to anybody who wants to explore faith and the meaning of mother-child relationships more deeply, and with an open mind.

I have not purchased, or read, this book - but, what gives someone the right to deliberately lowet the rating of a book when they know they will not purchase it just to say, "this sounds weird?" Be kind to authors. If you insist on posting something just to feel important at least make it a neutral rating.

This book sounds and looks good- the fact I haven't read the book doesn't help. But I have read a book like this before related to theis series and you can never put down this book. It is so hard to ,ove on in life and not sit ans read the entire day. I was amazed at how greatly these books are set up and how they are showed and represented. I greatly love this authir and what kind of bookz that the author does and uses.
