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.—both to the politically elite and to other women like her. But she also has a past that shamed polite society. Her experiences created in her paralyzing fear, faithlessness, addiction, and promiscuity. 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.

Peggy Madison is Mary’s grandmother, a quiet woman who has spent her life praying for her granddaughter. Peggy clings to the belief that God has a special plan for Mary. Through years of sorrow and longing, Peggy walks the journey in faith and watches from a distance as one key person after another comes into Mary’s life and demonstrates the timeless, powerful love of the Master, the Savior. The divine Lord.

Emma Randall is a single mother fleeing an abusive relationship, wondering whether there is hope for her and her young daughters. She is desperate, broken, and unloved, tempted to commit the unthinkable. Then Mary Madison introduces Emma to the greatest love of all, greater than any either of them has ever imagined.

    " The divine comedy is funny, but it is only funny to those who have read all the way through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Distantgreyghost | 1/19/2014

    " A classic tale. This wasn't the best translation that I have read, but still it is quite good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Oconnorj | 1/16/2014

    " I now know where I am going, and where everyone else is going also!!!! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua | 1/14/2014

    " One of my favorites of all time! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mackenzie | 1/1/2014

    " Inferno and Purgatorio were good, but Paradisio seemed a bit repetitive. It had a lot of slight variants on the same theme. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Norm | 12/30/2013

    " I wanted to read this book becasue of all the movie refences. It was a very good book. It also sheads light on what the author thought was inexcuseable during his lifetime. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hatezel | 12/17/2013

    " Too many people mistake this for the bible.. seriously and they have never even read it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 johnny | 11/20/2013

    " brutally painful to read, mostly due to the fact that this was a political satire about folks in dante's time and not really all the much about hell "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liana | 11/12/2013

    " Got to the seventh level of hell and put it down. This is not a sit-down-and-read-it-all-at-once kind of book. I love philosophy and religion and The Divine Comedy is a feast for the imagination. I plan on finishing it later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 10/19/2013

    " If it were published today, it would need serious improvements in the narrative form to keep up with the style of modern fantasy literature. Nevertheless, it has stood the test of time and deservedly retains the title of a classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney | 9/2/2013

    " Very hard read but I was instantly obsessed "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vildan | 8/23/2013

    " It is gorgeous but I seek background about astrolojia..And one more thing I have seen the ghost of Dante some nights...maybe because I thought he was inspired by islam, yet he did not respect my prophet.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 8/14/2013

    " good lawd!!!! this is def the best translation and the work is absolutely as good as we think it should be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana | 7/11/2013

    " Hard to understand, but good! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 6/20/2013

    " Best translation of several I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 3/7/2013

    " I only read the "Inferno" portion of this book. It is full of graphic, violent imagery. Very entertaining. Also contains lots of historic political and religious references, so reading the notes is required and they are lengthy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Justin | 1/31/2013

    " I survived The Inferno and climbed about three quarters of the way through The Purgatorio when my nose started bleeding. Not for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fredy | 11/13/2012

    " I love this book because it's one of the greatest works of literature. The book its self is really good the plot, the characters are all great "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 9/15/2012

    " I never get tired of reading and rereading this! Inferno has such rich, detailed descriptions... you can almost smell the sulfur. Then the beautiful ascent into paradiso.... Wonderful! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 11/18/2011

    " What to say? I'm going back into it... want to compare other translations. Hitting the "I'm finished" button is at the same time a relief and a huge misstatement. How can you ever be "finished"? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 5/19/2011

    " Okay. Well written but very predictable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jo | 5/18/2011

    " Not a bad book just really depressing even though it has an amazing message about hope and faith. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 5/13/2011

    " I'm not the biggest Karen Kingsbury fan just because her books can be a little perdictable but i did really enjoy this book and issues that it was about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marla | 5/13/2011

    " A tear jerker but I could not put it down. Quite a change from my reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lady | 4/29/2011

    " This is a modern day story inspired by Mary Magdalene. Ms. Kingsbury, delivered a tale filled with drama and spiritual guidance, that wasn't overbearing. The subject matter was harsh at times while reading, which she tactfully portrayed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 4/28/2011

    " Good allegorical story of modern day Mary Magdalene. Has some descriptions of physical and sexual abuse. "
