Summary

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 women like her. But she also has a past that shamed polite society. The 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.

Peggy Madison is Mary's grandmother, a quiet woman who has spent her life praying for her granddaughter. Peggy clings to the belief that God has a special plan for Mary. Through years of sorrow and longing, Peggy walks the journey in faith and watches from a distance as one key person after another comes into Mary's life and demonstrates the timeless, powerful love of the Master, the Savior. The divine Lord.

Emma Randall is a single mother fleeing an abusive relationship, wondering whether there is hope for her and her young daughters. She is desperate, broken, and unloved, tempted to commit the unthinkable. Then Mary Madison introduces Emma to the greatest love of all, greater than any either of them has ever imagined.

Divine!

This was such a compelling story. It was sweet and sad at the same time. Could definitely lead a person to the Lord.
Shows the love of Jesus in every way!

Powerful

Powerful story that captured my heart. It brings hope to anyone, but especially those struggling with their past regrets. It gave me insight in to the lives of others and a new understanding of the struggles people face.

A story of redemption, love, & God's faithfulness.

This was a great story, although at times hard to read because the reality that the characters were facing were so sad. Not a story I could listen to with my 2 year old around, but just is a great story of God's redeeming love.

Good story!

My only issue: use African American narrators for more realism, so everyone doesn't sound alike.

Intense and redemptive

I love how God can use people stories to bring healing to someone else. This book was about that. The beginning is definitely intense and you would not want to listen to this book with kids in the car. The narration was a little hard for me with some of her male voices. But overall great book.

I cant get enough

It never ceases to amaze me that Karen Kingsbury can keep pulling me in. I am addicted to her as an author. I hope to some day have her entire collection of books. It might not happen as I keep lending them out to get others addicted to! I binge read her books however this was my first one to listen to on audible. I loved it and was not ready for it to end.
