A collection of poems, prayers and liturgical material, focused around the figure of Mary, and the themes of motherhood, sisterhood, and female faith. It has a strong contemporary feel: clearly feminist, it affirms the significance of Mary in the faith journey of contemporary Christian (and other) women, and challenges and critiques traditional stereotypes of Mary. The subjects covered include the sorrows of Mary, her defiance and resistance, sexuality, sensuality, aloneness, independence and freedom, companionship, sisterhood, friendship, priesthood, contemplation, prayer and silence, wisdom, learning and authority, faith, risk and daring.
