Mary of Bellingham

A Novel

Book - 2003
Rate this:
An eight-months-pregnant teen arrives in the town of Bellingham, IN, a few weeks before Christmas. Though Mary does not speak, she is helped by a variety of people, including a lonely African-American mail carrier, a feminist waitress, an Arab-American doctor, and others, some whom believe that the girl is what she claims to be-a virgin and that her unborn son may have divine origins. While this book may be controversial for some conservative Christians, the questions it poses may interest others. The adult characters, while agreeable, are stereotypes. Mary, on the other hand, though more naive than most teens, is a likable protagonist whom young adults can relate to, especially when they finally hear her voice in the second part of the novel. They may also be challenged to rethink some of their beliefs or engage in discussion about some of the topics addressed.
