Abstract:

"When Beverly Donofrio enters her fortieth year, she begins a love affair with the Virgin Mary. Suffering over a grown son she's neglected and unsure of where her life is really headed, she feels she's entered her own version of Dante's dark wood. So she begins to meditate and to collect Virgin Marys at yard sales. Beverly is hardly a devout Catholic; she starts out thinking of her Mary collection as nothingmore than kitsch. But by effectively making a shrine of her home, she has invited the Virgin Mary in."--Jacket.
