did not like it
Read in December, 2007

I couldn't get through this book. There are two reasons for this: the first being I am getting my PhD in Mariology and do not need or want a history of apparitions (this has never interested me anyway) or need to know the basics of Catholic faith (this book completely ignores the Orthodox tradition's experience with Mary); the second being that the book is written in a jumble of supposedly creative non-fiction. Did this happen to the writer, or is it entirely fiction? Was it a giant excuse for a woman with a bee in her bonnet to do a research project and get it published? There's hardly any narrative, and if the information isn't new - and maybe if it is - comes across as a little dull.

Kathleen Murray yikes - but the book down already. This book I am certain was intended to be a fun read, light.
