Like Mary herself, this gem of a book is a gift of consolation and understanding that will withstand revisiting-unto-intimacy. I can't recommend it, enough.
--Elizabeth Scalia, First Things
Fifty-nine meditations (the number of beads on a traditional rosary) on Mary by a superb writer. She possesses a poetic sensitivity for images that express what words alone can't.
--Marianist Father James L. Heft, National Catholic Reporter
Intellectually stimulating and visually stunning, Full of Grace is a timely work of reflection. . . a vivid portrait of the Virgin Mary both as a biblical figure and as a beacon of inspiration.
Scared child. Proud parent. Beloved icon. Soul sister. In her startlingly beautiful new book . . . Dupré uses each of these phrases to describe the Virgin Mary.
----Cathleen Falsani, The Dude Abides blog
Intriguing . . . eccentric . . . an astonishing range of images . . . [Dupré] writes with lyricism and insight.
--The New York Times

I found it fascinating and excerpts from prose and poems I loved! I had to have this book
In her newest book, Full of Grace, she extends the trajectory to explore how Mary endures and resonates in various forms over time. Dupré weaves together biblical stories, analysis, and interpretation of religious artwork along with contemporary world issues and her own very personal essays and insights. The book is moving and informative and generous as its subject.
