LOOKING FOR MARY Or, The Blessed Mother and Me

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Christina Moore

Biography & Memoir • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

Beverly Donofrio, self-proclaimed "lapsed Catholic," realizes she has unwittingly surrounded herself with memorabilia of the Virgin Mary--statuary, throws, postcards--anything representative of the Holy Mother. The obsessive nature of the collection leads her first to therapy and then to a spiritual quest. Narrator Christina Moore has just the right attitude as the 40-something single mother. Donofrio makes assorted journeys, among them a retreat in Medjugorje, Bosnia, where she suffers through a six-day fast, tedious religious lectures, and an agonizing confession, her first in thirty-five years. She highlights her personal pilgrimage with recorded accounts of Mary and miracles--without proselytizing. Whether you're Catholic, atheist, agnostic, or pagan, engaging writing and a winning performance by the talented Christina Moore make this a must. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
