Reviews

"[The Testament of Mary] builds to a provocative climax, one that is as spiritually profound as its prose is plainspoken...A work suffused with mystery and wonder."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
"A slim, grave, exquisitely emotional book...The Testament of Mary is a spellbinding, surprisingly reverent book."--Jeff Giles "Entertainment Weekly"
"Lovely, understated and powerfully sad, The Testament of Mary finally gives the mother of Jesus a chance to speak. And, given that chance, she throws aside the blue veil of the Madonna to become wholly, gloriously human."--Annalisa Quinn "NPR"
"Mary--silent, obedient, observant--has echoed down two millennia, cementing a potent ideal in the Western imagination. Now the masterful Irish writer Colm Toibin puts a jackhammer to the cozy, safe, Christmas-card version in The Testament of Mary."--Karen R. Long "Cleveland Plain Dealer"
"Toibin's intimate approach make Mary feel more credible and human...The result, The Testament of Mary, feels true."--Claire Cameron "The Millions"
