The Testament of Mary – Colm Toibin

testament of maryREAD FOR BOOKERTHON

Mary, mother of Jesus, is in her old age and does not believe her son was the son of God. She refuses to co-operate with the gospel writers who visit her frequently.

❖ “This book could have gone a number a ways and to be honest I wasn’t desperate to read it, but actually Mary’s complexity was revealed with a kind of cutting humour that opened the story up to many interpretations. I liked this more than I thought I would.” – Rachel
