It is hard to write about Mary ("the" Mary to us good Catholics) in the present day without being disrespectful, but the author does a great job. Mary visits an rather agnostic single woman for a vacation, and the woman learns to accept what she does not understand. The book contains many stories of Mary throughout history, and then adds this new twist of her interaction in today's world. Cuteness is avoided (except for some wet Nikes after saving a child in the creek miracle) and the reader is found being open to not always understanding everything in the world. We tend to like knowledge (read: control) and this books allows us to enjoy being open to the unexplained. A gentle, humorous, and respectful look at Mary, faith, and our own self regard.
