Author’s notes: 1. The Passion of Mary-Margaret is not a retelling of Hosea and was not written to be read as such. 2. The term religious is used in this work as a noun at times.

Mary-Margaret yearned to dedicate her life to the Lord. This has such a vivid, original story line, setting, and characters that I was really impressed with it, and I'm not a fan of so-called Christian fiction. Jesus had another idea. When Mary-Margaret Fischer met Jude Keller.

John should be here in about an hour or so, so there’s plenty more time to write. Jotting this down has brought back such a flood of feeling I’m surprised it’s not sweeping all the luggage away here. Nowadays, we’re well aware of sexual abuse, but back then we didn’t even have a name for it, other than incest, which almost sounds consensual. And then as now, male victims were more likely not to tell a soul. But my sisters, what I want you to know is that Jesus truly means it when he says not to fear

The Passion of Mary-Margaret book. Bravo to Lisa Samson for writing a character so well that he seemed totally believable and like a real person to me, even more than Mary-Margaret

The Passion of Mary-Margaret book. Bravo to Lisa Samson for writing a character so well that he seemed totally believable and like a real person to me, even more than Mary-Margaret. And as horrific as his story was, I'd known many, many people with very similar stories who ended up just like him. Only Jesus can heal pain that entrenched and make someone whole again. When Mary-Margaret Fischer met Jude Keller, the lighthouse keeper's son, she was studying at a convent school on a small island off Chesapeake Bay. Destined for a life as a religious sister, she nevertheless felt a pull toward Jude-gorgeous, rebellious, promiscuous Jude. But Jude, driven by demons no one really understood, disappeared into Baltimore's seamy red-light district. Mary-Margaret moved on with her life, preparing to serve God with her sisters as a teacher and artist. Then Jude comes home-but.

Mary-Margaret moved on with her life, preparing to serve God with her sisters as a teacher and artist. Lisa Samson is the author of over twenty-five books, including the Christy award-winning novel Songbird. Then Jude comes home-but now he's bitter, dissolute, and diseased. Her novel, Quaker Summer was Christianity Today's novel of 2008. She is coauthor with her husband, Will, of Justice in the Burbs.

When Mary-Margaret Fischer met Jude Keller, the lighthouse keeper's son, she was studying at a convent school on a small island off Chesapeake Ba. The Passion of Mary-Margaret - Lisa Samson.

When Mary-Margaret Fischer met Jude Keller, the lighthouse keeper's son, she was studying at a convent school on a small island off Chesapeake Bay.

Lisa Sampson’s The Passion of Mary-Margaret is a contemporary story of the cost—and the reward—of following Jesus. Mary-Margaret Fischer has known her whole life that she wants to be a religious sister, but her path takes a different turn when Jesus shows up. He asks her to abandon her upcoming final vows and, instead, to follow him. Mary-Margaret’s, “Yes, Lord,” leads her down a path she never expected when Jesus instructs her to marry Jude Keller, the troubled boy from her childhood. The book should be read as fiction and not as a how-to manual on following Christ.

Mary-Margaret yearned to dedicate her life to the Lord. Jesus had another idea.

When Mary-Margaret Fischer met Jude Keller, the lighthouse keeper's son, she was studying at a convent school on a small island off Chesapeake Bay. Destined for a life as a religious sister, she nevertheless felt a pull toward Jude--gorgeous, rebellious, promiscuous Jude. But Jude, driven by demons no one really understood, disappeared into Baltimore's seamy red-light district. Mary-Margaret moved on with her life, preparing to serve God with her sisters as a teacher and artist.

Then Jude comes home--but now he's bitter, dissolute, and diseased. And Mary-Margaret receives a divine call that shakes her to the core, a call to give up her dreams for the troubled man who befriended her so long ago. For Jesus' sake, can she forsake the only life she ever wanted for a love that could literally cost her life?

This is the best book I've read by this author. I had read Quaker Summer previously and liked it so little that I gave it to a stranger. I have already loaned this book to a friend and I want it back. This book's theses is: When life looks like it's all planned, can something completely contrary to that plan ever be pleasing to God? I'm not going to give an answer because this book is worth reading to find out. The author jumps back and forth between time periods in the protagonist's life but this is an easy jump. The protagonist and her friends are well characterized and for those unfamiliar with Roman Catholic clergy, this book gives a clear explanation of how the hierarchy and rules work. Although I have never been a Roman Catholic, I had no difficulty identifying with the characters and situations. And I found it to be a good example of how love works in everyday situations.

It's such a beautiful story about a girl who had plans on how to live her life but yet she followed Jesus obediently, and there were times she understood Him, and there were also times that she was confused about His plans but she followed Him obediently nevertheless. Her plans may not have matched with His plans but yet everything turned out for the best and every piece fell into the rightful place. The passion and intimacy between Mary-Margaret and Jesus was so strong and envious. It's such a stunning novel. Full of wonderful characters.

This is one of those books that makes you glad there is grace in every phase of life and every season has it's own beauty. This is the first Lisa Samson book I have read. I now am ready to become an avid reader of her. This book is a treasure that you can read over and over. The intimacy of Mary Margaret's relationship with Jesus is real and one that made me want to sit and have a cup of tea with Him. I loved pondering each part of the journey and it felt like I was reading a journal of a real person rather than a fiction.
I appreciae the way Lisa writes and the way she does not rush to tell the story. Beautiful book.

I don't know where to begin to tell you how wonderful this book is to read. The characters are beautifully thoughtout and real, the story flows perfectly and you can feel the passion and desire in this book. All of Samson's books are amazing, but this is her masterpiece. This book is on the top of my list of favorite books. I have been forever changed by this book. I have lost count on how many of these books I have bought to ship to friends and family who I knew needed the blessing of this book in their lives. Buy this book! Also buy "Embrace Me" and "Resurrection in May" by Lisa Samson. You will not regret it!

This is my favorite Lisa Samson book, and I've read several of them. This has such a vivid, original story line, setting, and characters that I was really impressed with it, and I'm not a fan of so-called Christian fiction. A must read!

This was a delightful read. It touched on some issues that were familiar to me, while stretching me to think differently at the same time. I appreciate Lisa Samson's willingness to write outside of the box within the framework of "Christian Fiction."

This was a unique story - a woman who wanted to devote her life to God came to believe God wanted her to pursue something else, and she accepted the adventure. The main story was great, but my favorite part was reading about the woman's relationship with God, her love story. I also always enjoy how Lisa Samson challenges Christians to dig deeper and question some of their assumptions or expectations about how God may work.
This was a great read that had me hooked from the beginning. I had a hard time getting my work done because I could not put it down. My Kindle fire went everywhere with me until I finished it.
