Since the focus of this review is a worse than worthless book about a fictional Mary, the potential book purchaser is justified in asking, "What should I read about Mary?" "What can I learn that goes beyond what is written in the Gospels?"

On 8/8/88, a priest (a member of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary) suggested to me that I read some of the works of Adrienne von Speyr, whose works in English translation are published by Ignatius Press. I should warn you that Adrienne, who was a medical doctor, can shatter your worldview in a single paragraph, with a tone that sounds like an early AT&T recording:

"We're sorry, but you have largely misunderstood the meaning and purpose of everything. Please stand by for a worldview upgrade."

Suggested Google search, and a good place to begin reading Adrienne von Speyr:
