Item description for Divine (Christian Softcover Originals) by Karen Kingsbury...
Overview The horror of this novel about a young girl who survives sexual abuse is expertly dramatized by Sharon Williams. Williams communicates the whole spectrum of emotions and creates empathy in the listener. Characters are well differentiated, and European and Hispanic accents are superb. The powerful story of Mary Madison, inspired by the life of Mary Magdalene, is filled with tragedy until caring people reach out to her and guide her to safety and to faith in God. Mary, in turn, spends her life opening shelters for battered women and becomes a strong advocate for abused women. Well written and well read, DIVINE is a picture of how one life, exposed to the worst of the human condition, can be transformed. N.L.

Publishers 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Divine (Christian Softcover Originals)?
Moved me Mar 27, 2008
WOW-this book made me think I was reading about my own life. I too went through some devastating things in my childhood. Some similar to what happened to Mary. While the book was hard to read sometimes it was a true depiction of how God's love can truly set you free if you just accept that he loves you unconditionally. It doesn't matter what you were or thought you were, he is there with arms wide open ready to forgive if you just ask and recieve. Thank you to Karen Kingsbury for reinforcing Gods light in my life with this touching book.
God loves even the people that don't think they are worth it!!!! Feb 23, 2008
I liked this book because it gave you two people that had horrible lives that were inspired to come to Jesus. It showed God's influence in our lives even we leasted expect it.
too graphic not even scripture Jan 15, 2008
karen kingsbury has always been a favorite of mine. Why she chose this topic I am unsure. As a Christian we already have plenty of negative in the world not to read about it in depth. I kept telling myself that she will prove herself but I felt she did not. With such a deep topic more scripture should have been introduced. We do have a Divine God and she did show some but more could have been shown. I have and will discourage people to read this book.
great reading Jan 11, 2008
I love Karen Kingsbury. I have read several of her books.This is one of my favorite books. I could not put this book down. I believe I read this book in two days. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to read a good book. I hope this was helpful. Read it for yourself. I don't think you will be disappointed.

I received this book for Christmas and I couldn't find a place to stop reading. To know that God is a God of mercy to people that are depressed and hurting. This book illustrates that no matter how low you are, there is always a God who is there to listen.
