I have a major respect for this author because to share all of this in a memoir and sharing it with the world. Seeing as how she has been through this I'm sure others have or currently are. That is always a great benefit of sharing stories like this, it may help others.
This book did keep me intrigued all the way through however I was expecting something really big to happen and to me there wasn't really a climax. Other than that it was a good read. It was a story where you felt for Deidre, I wanted to help her. It was also rather chilling to read about all the crazy scary things that have happened to her. I'm rather interested to see what the sequel holds. I give `Saving Mary: The Possession' three stars.
Deidre Daily wages a battle each moment against her vivid nightmares, the presence of unseen eyes watching her and her family's domestic troubles. through her Ouija Board, Deidre finds escape from her predicament. little did she know that her games and intense desire to know more about the spirit world would lead her down the road to possession.
the book is written from a first-person perspective and it is interesting to note that as the story progresses, subtle changes in Ms. Havrelock's tone and prose become evident.
initially, one hears Deidre recounting her ordeal with the voice of an innocent and very frightened child. this changes to that of a teenager and later to that of an adult. as a counterpoint, sounds constantly heard are markedly emphasized and punctuated. i find these transitions (child to teen to adult) and use of onomatopoeia disturbing and arresting at the same time. they reflect Deidre's physical and mental state as she gets older and more involved in her quest to find God and understand the concepts of good and evil.
author Deidre D. Havrelock's spiritual memoir is more than just a chilling account of the events that plagued her childhood and adolescence. it is also a cautionary tale.
although i am both keeping an open mind and taking everything with a grain of salt, this book's message should not be ignored. moreover, my curiosity has been piqued and i look forward to finding out in the next book how Ms. Havrelock's deliverance came about.
I have not walked this walk, but the emotions and feelings ... searching, not fitting in, fear, and lonliness are ones we can all relate to. Don't miss this page-turning account of Deidre's childhood searching for God and love. I can't wait to read more of the story in the next book.
The conflict of religion, spirituality and the fight against evil comes off as scary and at times unbelievable. How can one person go through so much and live to tell the story? The fact that this is a memoir, a true story will leave a haunting presence with you after you read it.
Stepping away from the supernatural feel, this book also portrays human strength and is a testament that the human mind can do anything it sets its mind too. This book was a page turner and I am honoured to have been able to share Deidre's experience with her.
The writer makes an extremely good attempt at telling you her story, sharing the details with you, pulling you into the story and leaving a lasting impression. I, for one, can't wait for Book 2.
Offensive content?: Yes not recommended for anyone with a weak heart and children below 15.(PG15)
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.
