Editorial Reviews

Review

This account of Jesus is unique and personal, as it is being told from his mother's perspective. Davis has a true gift of writing as she ties in details of living back in Biblical times, creating realistic scenes. - Kristie I.  for ReadersFavorite.com

This book hits the mark in  recounting the reason Jesus came to this earth; to teach us how to live and love. Laura did a magnificent job in portraying that truth.
 - Heidi McLaughlin, Author of Sand to Pearls

We hear the tender maternal love, the worry, the fears and awe-inspiring faith that allowed her to become the vessel to carry God's only Son. Laura writes with a gentle hand and yet doesn't hold back on the reality of the cross. It is a fascinating perspective and a wonderful read. - Award-winning Author Donna (Fawcett) Dawson

Format: Paperback
Laura Davis's "Come To Me" is a skillfully written historical novel that brings to the table many of the events of the life of Jesus from Mary's perspective. From the time I started it I simply couldn't put it down. I love the entire book, but the part of the passion of Jesus was gut-wrenching yet inspiring. How much must we matter to the Creator of the universe to endure the brutality of the cross!
The final days of Jesus after his resurrection made me wish I was there to live the glory of the risen Christ. As I read this book, I found myself immersed in the story just as the disciples were a part of Jesus' life. And in a sense I was there through the pages of this book. A must read if you are a Christian or a seeker.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Dolores Ayotte on September 12, 2011
Format: Paperback
Author Laura Davis has managed to capture a facet of the holy family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, that I have never been exposed to thus far. Davis' book starts off with the story of Mary, Jesus' mother at the age of fifty-eight years old. Although "Come To Me" is a fictional book, there are many biblical references to give authenticity to the story Davis has to share with her readers.

The apostles, Luke and Matthew, are spending time with Mary and quizzing her about her life as mother to Jesus. They are busy asking questions and taking notes in order to have a written account of exactly what took place before the birth of Jesus, the years that led up to His death and Mary's life afterwards which lasted well into her eighties. The warmth and teasing manner that is exchanged between Mary, Luke and Matthew is an example of what is yet to come as this beautiful novel unfolds.

One of the concepts I found so refreshing and endearing is the human face that Davis gives to the holy family. She uses terms like Joseph with "his brown eyes twinkling with excitement" as he gives Mary a surprise gift (a prayer bench which Joseph preferred to use as a kissing bench). She also states that Mary "laughed" as she describes how protective Joseph and Jacob were as they stood guard outside the stable after the birth of Jesus. Yet again when Jesus was much older, Davis mentions that "Jesus' eyes twinkled with merriment as he saw her confusion and wrapped his arms around her in a big bear hug. Laughing, he kissed her cheek..." as she describes Jesus' affection for Ima, His mother.

Davis' down-to-earth, humanistic description of the holy family brings this wonderful story to life in a unique and wonderful way.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Nora A. Stlaurent on June 5, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book starts with the birth of Christ and takes the reader along to his death and resurrection seen through the eyes of Mary, his mother. Come to Me reminded me of the movie The Nativity Story; where they give an account of the harsh environment and the social realities Mary, Jesus mother grew up in. It wasn't a sugar coated Hollywood production but showed the nitty-gritty of life in Nazareth.

Laura Davis shows a believable account of Mary's life before and after she finds out she's pregnant by the Holy Spirit and has to tell her betrothed Joseph. I haven't read any book that's showed the playful side of Mary who was a teenage girl and Joseph who wasn't that much older than Mary. I enjoyed the authenticity and innocence of the book.

I enjoyed how this author revealed the intimate dialogue, playful side of Mary and Joseph the fun they had as they awaited their wedding day. Then she showed the heart-wrenching reality of Joseph finding out Mary is with child and it's not his. Joseph respects Mary and can't believe that she would lie to him, then the Angel speaks to Joseph in a dream and he believes Mary. I enjoyed reading about Josephs love for Mary and how he struggled to do the right thing.

Laura used her imagination to fill in the dialogue between Mary and Joseph as it might have been, two young people traveling to Bethlehem for the census. Mary was pretty far along in her pregnancy to travel. This journey is a little different than what you're used to reading and I enjoyed that. Laura explains why she wrote the story the way she did, it was very interesting.

This story line is unique as it's told through Mary, the mother of Jesus' eyes.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Heart of a Philanthropist on August 3, 2013
Format: Paperback
What happens when an angel tells you that you will birth the Savior? How do you handle that? I am so glad that I am not Mary, but at the same time I am envious of the role she played in His life, and that she was privileged to be so intimate with the Savior!

I love the playful side of Jesus that is shown in this fictitious account of Jesus's life that was based on the Word. I felt for Mary as she slowly had to watch her son leave the intimate relationship she and her son once had as Jesus began His ministry on the earth. I saw a different point of view than I ever thought of when I listened to Judas's reasoning for betraying his friend. I was inspired by the warm welcome Jesus received on Good Friday.

Come to Me was Mary's narrative of her life with Jesus. It is fiction, but it is based on the gospels. The book transitions from Mary's retelling of stories of Jesus to the biblical accounts. Eager listeners held on Mary's every word as she travelled to be with her newfound son, John.

I have read the gospel account of Jesus's life and death several times. I am thankful that Laura Davis wrote this book. It got me excited about the gospel once again and gave me a new perspective that I hadn't thought of before. I believe I have new eyes to see the gospel story with after reading this book. IT is a delight. You will not be disappointed.

I give this book 5 stars. I am definitely recommending it to friends and family.

I was given a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. [...] I send all books to Maranatha Library in the Philippines to add to their shelves when I am finished reviewing them. Thank you and God Bless!
