Publisher's Description

Best-selling author Karen Kingsbury weaves another dramatic story of tragedy and redemption!

Mary Madison was a child of unspeakable horrors, a young woman society wanted to forget. Now a divine power has set Mary free to bring life-changing hope and love to battered and abused women living in the shadow of the nation's capital.

Mary is educated and redeemed, a powerful voice in Washington, D.C.—both to the politically elite and to other women like her. But she also has a past that shamed polite society. Her experiences created in her paralyzing fear, faithlessness, addiction, and promiscuity. At the crossroads of her life, only one power set Mary free and gave her a lifetime of love and hope. A power that could only be divine.

    I must say that this is one of Karen Kingsbury's better books in regard to theology, doctrine, and true Christian living. Although there were one or two parts (statements, really) that do not agree with Scripture, the rest of the book is quite accurate in a biblical sense.

    In all, okay, most, of her other books, Kingsbury tries way too hard to express drama. She attempts to make a dramatic situation out of the most trivial, least emotional occasions. However, I do not think this is the case for Divine. I do feel she prolonged the story somewhat and had a bit TOO many "bad things" happen (not to say that they *can't* happen, but in a book you sometimes need to say 'enough!'), but it's not nearly as severe as in her other less biblical books. I found myself saying, "Oh, come on!," only once or twice. Otherwise, I COULDN'T PUT DOWN THE BOOK!

    Also, in her other books, the majority of her characters are so ridiculous in action, thought, and word in order to (attempt to) make the story more dramatic (but it really makes it barely tolerable to read). But in Divine, she hit on reality; the characters seem more real, with more realistic reactions and emotions.

    She relayed the love of Christ exceptionally, as well as redemption, forgiveness by others (Christians), and the love of Christians and the fact that they WILL be different than the world.

    I do recommend this book for older teens (17+) and up due to the very mature content (not necessarily graphic, mind you, but enough to make you shake your head, cringe, and sometimes tear up because you know it happens to people!).
