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 horror of this novel about a young girl who survives sexual abuse is expertly dramatized by Sharon Williams. Williams communicates the whole spectrum of emotions and creates empathy in the listener. Characters are well differentiated, and European and Hispanic accents are superb. The powerful story of Mary Madison, inspired by the life of Mary Magdalene, is filled with tragedy until caring people reach out to her and guide her to safety and to faith in God. Mary, in turn, spends her life opening shelters for battered women and becomes a strong advocate for abused women. Well written and well read, DIVINE is a picture of how one life, exposed to the worst of the human condition, can be transformed.
