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.

Life isn’t always fair, and no one knows that better than fifteen-year-old Puck. When she’s unceremoniously booted from yet another foster home, this city kid lands at DreamRoads, a rehabilitation wilderness camp for juvies. Her fellow campers include a famous pop star with a diva attitude, a geeky, “fish out of water” math whiz, and a surly gang-banger with a chip on his shoulder. The program’s steely director aims to break Puck, but she knows that every adult has a breaking point, too. Determined to defy this realm of agonizing nature hikes and soul-sucking psychobabble — even if that means manipulating four lovestruck camp counselors and the director’s dim-witted second-in-command — Puck ultimately gets much more than she bargains for in this “wondrous strange” outdoor odyssey inspired by The Bard’s most beguiling comedy.
I had a struggle with this book. For most of the story, I found the teens at DreamRoads to be self-centered and annoying; especially Titania,…
