Editorial Reviews


"The stories that make us who we are usually remain hidden from the watching world. Until now, that has been true of Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle who, for years, I've known as a writer of rare luminous simplicity and maternal sensitivity whose spirituality bears the mark of her encounters with Mother Teresa. I was unprepared for the shocking assaults, penetrating injuries, wounds of betrayal, shame of poverty and neglect that alternately enraged and grieved me as I read her memoir. This is no mere conversion story."
--Al Kresta, President CEO Ave Maria Communications Host Kresta in the Afternoon

"In this amazing true story of faith Donna-Marie shares painful details of her past struggles as well as a very honest discussion concerning life's many challenges. This is not so her readers will feel sorry for her but instead to show all of us that even in the most challenging of circumstances God is with us. He turns the greatest tragedies into triumphs and in Donna-Marie's case the Lord turned her misery into a powerful ministry."
--Teresa Tomeo, Motivational Speaker, Best Selling Author, Syndicated Catholic TalkShow Host

"A true account of struggle, abuse, and redemption. In The Kiss of Jesus, Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle tells an extraordinary true story about how Jesus saved her life. This book will surely inspire hope in others. Highly recommended."
--Immaculee Ilibagiza, Author, Left To Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust

"This book knocked my socks off! I would have never expected that such a sweet, joyful and soft-spoken woman had lived such a perilous, abusive and violent life. Yet she never lost her joy or her hope. God was always with her, just as He is with each of us. Donna-Marie's story shows us that if we trust Jesus, that we can find joy in suffering and that like our Lord, we sometimes have to endure the sufferings of Good Friday before we reach the joy and glory of Easter."
--Gail Buckley, Founder & President, Catholic Scripture Study International

"Donna-Marie knows the Cross as she has suffered physical and mental pain, abuse, near starvation, evictions, the machinations of an unjust court and the near loss of her children. But she also knew and was inspired by people such as Blessed Mother Teresa and Fr. John Hardon. Her faith was so indescribably deep that, not only is she transformed by her suffering, she transforms others. Which is what will happen to you when you read The Kiss of Jesus."

--Joan Lewis, EWTN Rome bureau chief

"Allows us to enter into her heart, and accompany her on a remarkable spiritual journey."

--Brian Patrick, Anchor, EWTN News Nightly

"An inspiring roller coaster story about a life devoted to Jesus and his Church that encourages us to make courageous choices in life."  

--Randy Hain, Author, Journey to Heaven
