Mary’s first-person account of watching her son grow into the man known as Jesus.  She retells her story years after the crucifixion, when the disciples, who are trying to write the Gospels, want to hear more than Mary’s actual version of events. Mary tells some of  most well-known stories including one about which she is a little skeptical (and scared) -  turning water to wine — while nostalgically telling them about the simpler days of being a mother, back when her son wasn’t The Son.

A book for mothers, a book for readers who love Toibin’s writing, and a thought provoking tale, perfect for book groups.
