This story marks a return to the reverence of Mary, the mother of Jesus, at a time when the United States Catholic Church and its baby boomers followers de-emphasized the Virgin Mother's role in the Christian faith. Written by a one-time atheist, Looking for Mary speaks to women who are looking for answers in an age where spirituality and motherhood are too often viewed as setbacks.

Having began as a radio documentary for NPR, Looking for Mary is well-suited as an audiobook. This unabridged book is narrated by Christina Moore across four cassette tapes in seven hours.\

Elle Magazine

Candid, entertaining, and abundantly enlightening, Looking for Mary sizzles with the fervor of the seekers and the sought-after, and delivers between its cover a sweet and salty miracle.
