Completely original and unique story of a yound woman who believes she is being visited by the Virgin Mary in visions. She attracts a following and problems arise. It was completely engrossing.

I'm still drawn to those stories about religious dysfunction and people who have "callings" or visions. This is one of the better done stories. I came to like all of the characters involved and Guterson pulls you in as he did with Snow Falling on the Cedars.

I really liked it, very interesting story of religious fanaticism and the dehumanization of it. If you liked Snow Falling on Cedars you will like this.

I usually finish stories, however, this was so plodding and boring, I couldn't.

Plot of this book was so unlike anything else I've ever read. Its a good story and one that will stick with you after you read it...maybe because the subject matter is a little disturbing!

A look at how much people today need to find something to bolster their faith. Lovely, sensitve language; a delight to the senses and something to behold for anyone who loves the written word.

Good use of descriptive language and truly enjoyed narrator. Story examines how others project their needs or desires on events so that they can interpret these events in particular ways. Story was good but I didn't identify with any characters.
