Saving Mary: The Possession
Author: Deidre Haverlock
Release Date: April 1, 2012
If you’re a fan of supernatural fiction then you will be captivated by this true story about a spiritually sensitive girl and the path that led to her possession. Part one of a two-part series, Saving Mary is the story of a modern-day Mary Magdalene—the woman from whom Jesus cast out seven demons. Deidre Daily is drawn to anything seemingly spiritual, desperately seeking a spiritual existence. But inside this vibrant girl hides a terrified child who sincerely believes she has married the devil. Through a series of spiritual encounters her fear turns into reality, and she ends up possessed.
Deidre’s fascinating spiritual memoir relays her story from childhood to adolescence: invisible eyes leering at her from the corner of her bedroom, horrible nightmares tormenting her, and her desperate attempt to find God—only to end up possessed. It is a candid account of possession from a first-person perspective. This dark memoir brings to light an intricate world of deceitful spirits hell-bent on manipulating and damaging an innocent girl’s life, not only through her dreams, but also through seemingly every-day encounters.
Saving Mary: The Possession is an incredibly interesting memoir of a woman who was plagued by supernatural powers. The book is told in a conversational tone, which makes it easy to put yourself into the middle of the story alongside Deidre and all the things happening around her. The narrative is fast paced and well written, which makes it almost impossible to stop reading until you've finished. The story itself is something that would make your skin crawl while watching a movie; then you remember that you're reading a memoir - that this is a true story - and that really drives the creepiness home. If this was a novel or other work of fiction, it would be a great read. That it is a memoir makes it a real life nightmare. Highly recommended for fans of horror fiction and religious memoirs.
