Publisher's Summary

Entering her 40th year, Beverly Donofrio, a "lapsed Catholic," inexplicably begins collecting Virgin Mary memorabilia at yard sales. Soon, immersing herself in a spiritual quest, she makes a pilgrimage to the holy city of Medjugorje. There, she learns that Mary comes into a person’s life only when pride steps out and receives a bonus: hope. In Looking for Mary, Donofrio offers the universal story about a woman who--in a quest for the Blessed Mother--finds herself.

    Story
    "One of my favorite books of all time!"

    Fabulously written and read with hipster cynicism masking deep longing for faith and meaning-true connection with the Divine. I've listened more times than I can count. Always speaks to me in new and fresh ways. Probably my second favorite book after Autobiography of a Yogi.

    Story
    "too much confession"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The found again Catholics seem to be obsessed with admitting all their sins. I understand that finding the Church is a relief but I don't think its necessary to tell everyone every sin.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the parts where the author actually stayed on story with her feelings toward the Blessed mother


    Do you think Looking for Mary needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It would be helpful to know if she stayed with her devotion and connection to the Blessed Mother and what she did to keep the devotion...

    Story
    "Loved the book & narrator!"

    This book filled my spirit. As a non-Catholic who has had Mother Mary inching her way into my life, it was just perfect. The personality of Beverly really came through as it was being read. I couldn't wait for my time to listen to this book each day and was sad when it ended. Delightful and touching AND I learned so much.
