      As one of my all-time favorite authors, Karen Kingsbury has done it again.

      ‘Divine’ is a book of fiction whose main character, Mary Madison, is loosely made out to be a modern day Mary Magdalene.

      Ms Kingsbury brings tears to your eyes as she recounts the years of physical, emotional and sexual abuse experienced by


      Mary Madison, in a way that only she can. There are no horribly graphic scenes, but her writing style paints a picture that you see all too well without benefit of specific words.

      Mary, ever the survivor, rises above it all and relives her story often as she tells it to other ...


      • victims of abuse, changing untold lives over the years. The secondary character in ‘Divine’ is a young mother named Emma, and accounts of their individual lives are intertwined throughout the novel in such a way that they blend remarkably well, without confusion. Emma, who Mary sees falling into the same abyss that
        she herself did a number of years ago, is caught in a pit of drugs and abuse. As God lifted Mary from sure death, so she shows Emma that He can with her too.

        I’ve no doubt that this book can change lives, much the same as the fictional character within its pages.
