Book review

The Wychwood Magazine is hoping to include a book review in each issue. Readers are very welcome to send in a brief review of a book that they have valued and while we only have space for one or two per issue, we hope to be spoiled for choice!

The testament of Mary by Colm Toibin

This is a beautifully written book recounting Mary’s thoughts and feelings as she observes her son growing up and, with little warning, becoming the son who would be hailed as the Messiah and the Son of God. The prose flows without recourse to verbosity or long windedness and there is no hint of evangelising from an author who makes no claims to a personal faith. Good Friday becomes the focus for her reflections, a mix of awe and grief.

This book was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 2013; a wonderful, heart-warming and thought-provoking book, which is available from Milton library.
