Karen Kingsbury's novel "Divine" is a modern-day retelling of Mary Magdalene's story and the contemporary demons she faces. She recounts her past of physical and sexual abuse, drug addiction, and suicidal thoughts at an abuse shelter she runs.

Mary Madison es una mujer creyente rica y poderosa que es conocida en los circulos politicos y que a menudo testifica ante diversos comites a favor de las mujeres que han sido golpeadas y maltratadas. Mary fue maltratada en su juventud. En esta parabola actual de Maria Magdalena, Karen Kingsbury usa la emocion que estremece el alma para mostrar como solo el amor divino puede rescatarnos de las profundidades de la depravacion y el maltrato, y la transformacion redentora que es posible cuando finalmente aceptamos ese amor.
Mary Madison was a child of unspeakable horrors, a young woman society wanted to forget. Now a divine power has set Mary free to bring life-changing hope and love to battered and abused women living in the shadow of the nation's capital. Mary is educated and redeemed, a powerful voice in Washington, D.C., to the politically elite and to other women like her-but her past shames polite society. At the crossroads of her life, only one power set Mary free and gave her a lifetime of love and hope. A power that could only be divine.
