Review for A Mother Knows Her Child: Poetic Meditations from Mary, published 2014:
“This is not a Mary removed from the struggle of womankind. This is the earthly mother who models surrender to her spiritual mission, even when her heart is breaking."
--Gloria Karpinski
Review for A Mother Knows Her Child: Poetic Meditations from Mary, published 2014:
“A Mother Knows Her Child is a gift from Linda Beatrice Brown. She takes us on a journey with Mary through an exquisitely inspired interpretation of the Immaculate Conception. Through the painful moments when we try to protect our children from danger, yet cannot. And through those arduous times that we forget—yet, are reminded of the eternal promises. I find myself coming back again and again to walk with Mary who now feels like a good friend because the author has made her known, most intimately, to us."
--Gwendolyn Rice
