Divine by Karen Kingsbury


Karen Kingsbury is a #1 best-selling author and written many Christian fiction books.

Divine is published by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.


This is my first book by Karen Kingsbury but it won't be my last! Divine took a strong hold on me from the very first page. I received the book today and didn't put it down till I finished. Ms. Kingsbury has written a story about a modern day Mary Magdalene dealing with her own demons before finding peace and love through faith in God. The story tells of the horrors Mary went through as a small child and young adult before becoming an educated powerful speaker in Washington, DC.
Her horror story helps other young abused women find their way.She also shares the story of her drug abused mother, the love and faith of her grandmother. How that love gave her the strength to deal with foster homes, abuse, and self doubt. Divine also takes us into the life of a abused young lady and her mother. Although this is fiction it grips your very soul. You feel like you are right there hearing Mary's story firsthand and your heart breaks for all she went through. Her faith, courage and love gives us all hope, faith and courage to handle and appreciate each day of our own lives. This is a must read book that I highly recommend.

I think that is wonderful you are able to do reviews for them in place of getting free books. Great deal.

I use to read constantly. Now I am so busy taking care of my mom during the day that I get in bed and I am gone to the world. Miss my escape in my books.

Take care,
Connie
