I especially love Sarah's honesty in admitting that she wasn't initially thrilled with the idea of a "daily devotional" sort of thing, as she often tends to fall away from those.
She says that Through the Year With Mary was:
not at all what I expected. At 117 pages, it was slim enough to fit into any purse I would leave the house with. The quotes were not the usual Marian fare and the reflections were substantial, though often only a sentence long.Find Sarah's full review here.
I read this book in about a week — a month or two each evening after it came — and I can tell you, with complete confidence, that it’s completely worth what you’ll spend for it. Whether you use it as it’s intended, as a daily devotional, or you read it as it suits you, you’ll find that you glimpse Mary in unexpected ways. The combination of off-the-beaten-track quotes and Edmisten’s accompanying meditation makes for a read that sticks with you in the very best way.
Thank you, Sarah! (said the author, blushing.)
