Mary is the flower of femininity to some, a woman of power to others. She has been seen as a paragon of obedience as well as an instrument of liberation. Some have piled her status so high that it rivals that of her Son. Other do their best to ignore her. Behind all of those images is a girl who grew up to be the mother of Christ.

I will need to listen to again as well as make notes in the paperback. Normally, I don’t like it when authors narrate their books but I felt like Frederica Mathews-Green was here reading it to me. She has a very calming voice. I want to lovingly honor and respect The Virgin Mary without worshiping her. I have always held Mary at arms length so this was very helpful to me.

What made the experience of listening to The Lady and the Unicorn the most enjoyable?

The readers were great and so was the story.

What other book might you compare The Lady and the Unicorn to and why?

The Girl with the Pearl Earring

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love it when women in that time period were not portrayed as victims, but strong, courageous and smart.
