"I loved the story! It is very powerful to think about how Mary would have really felt. It really made me stop and meditate on that for a while." - Kelli Simonds, author Seven Attitude Changing Postures of a Christian
"This is an excellent fictional account of what it might have been like to walk in Mary's shoes. The author did not take any verses out of context, but simply allowed the reader to see the human side of Mary." Barbara, winner of Goodreads copy
