Mary is the daughter of a ship builer. Mary has just celebrated a save return of her father from one of his trips. Everyone has settled down for the evening, when Mary is kidnapped. She is rescued but ever since her safe return, she has not been the same. She keeps having nightmares. As the years pass, the nightmares get worse and Mary even experiences seizures. Her family fears for her. It gets to bad that Mary's husband has to lock her in her room. Things change when a rabbi named Jesus travels to Mary's town. Jesus heals Mary and from that point on, she promises to follow Jesus.
This is the second book I have read by this author and the second story about women from the Bible. Diana really protrays the women from the Bible as the strong women they truely are. I am embarrassed to admit that I kind of remember Mary but am vague on the details surrounding Mary.
Mary was amazing. The stuff she had to endure with the nightmares and being spawned by her family and friends due to the nightmares. Having earned the title Mad Mary. I can not imagine. What a great story though to learn that it was all not for nothing. She was the first to see Jesus when he was resurrected. That is amazing. It just goes to show you that things in our lives may seem difficult and we can not see an end or figure out a reason why but God has a reason and plan and if we listen and wait we will see the answer. I am glad that Diana chose to feature the story of Mary. I can not wait to see which woman she will pick next from the Bible.

As a successful photographer who frequently travels around the world, Chase
Sullivan has his pick…
Together with her one year old daughter Maja, single mother Sofie Lund moves into the house she inherited from her grandfather. Sofie has such painful memories that she has had every trace of the old man removed, every trace but a locked safe that has been bolted to the basement floor. Inside the safe, Sofie finds something shocking that will also become crucial evidence in a case that has plagued Inspector William Wisting for a long time. To follow this lead though, he must cut across important loyalties and undermine confidence in the police force.
I enjoyed this book. William Wisting is a good main character. In regards to his daughter and him working together, it was a little hard to gauge how well they do work together as Line was trying to help protect her friend by withholding details about the case. However, back to William. He seems like a nice guy. Plus, he is a good detective.
The story was fine and the characters were alright. What I mean by this is that I did no…
