Saving Mary: The Possession by Deidre Havrelock
Welcome fellow readers to my stop on the book tour hosted by Virtual Book Tour Cafe’! I have a review to share with you, and hope you’ll enjoy learning more about Saving Mary: The Possession and the author Deidre Havrelock.
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 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.
Travel with Deidre into the mysterious world of spirits, ghosts and demons. Awaken yourself to a world that isn’t supposed to exist; a world that’s as intriguing as it is sinister. And then emerge as a new person — invigorated, aware and intent on living in the light. Saving Mary; Not just another story about a girl and her exorcist.

Keep reading for my review! Be sure to look through all the tabs for more details.
I‘ve always enjoyed tales about demonic possession. I’m a huge horror fan, so it’s no surprise. However, I’ve only watched it on the big screen in movies like these:
Saving Mary: The Possession is the first book I’ve read that deals with this topic. It’s based on a true story, but it reads like fiction. It’s an easy read — both eye-opening and interesting. I think it would make a great movie, and it would fit right in with the ones I’ve pictured
This is the introduction to “Mary’s” possession and details the events leading up to it. Mary is half native American and grew up with the prejudice of her generation before multiculturalism was popular. I’m Irish-Chinese and can relate to the bullying and teasing. It was never easy and it was hard to overcome at a young age.
If you enjoy the genre, this is a title you should add to your to-be-read shelf. It’s definitely worth reading. I look forward to the rest of the story!
Deidre believes theology is for everyone! It’s for working moms and soccer parents and for introverted engineers who don’t know what to say at dinner parties. It’s for energetic athletic-types who traverse mountains on cool bikes and for lethargic teenagers who write dark poetry. It’s for Trekkies and Twihards and Gleeks, nurses and teachers and those who Twitter and Ping. It’s for older people with Labs and round-faced happy people with too many cats. In other words, theology is not just for theologians. Did you get that? You do not have to be an intellectual to comprehend theology. You do not have to be a preacher. And yes, there is so much more to the Bible than what churches, on average, are currently teaching. Understanding the spiritual teachings of your Christian faith is fun … and more than that, it’s important.
We cannot keep from speaking about what we have seen and heard. (Acts 4:20)
Are we in a crisis? Testifying about Jesus is the foundation of evangelism. If our foundation is weak, our attempts to evangelize will be unprofitable. Unfortunately, too few know the theology underlining testimony. And, sadly, when we do testify we tend to speak about ourselves, God, church and faith, habitually forgetting Jesus in the process. The Church is in a crisis. Our foundation is weak. The Testimony rebuilds a strong foundation for evangelism.
The MotherHeart of God
The MotherHeart of God examines the many scriptures that reveal the Holy Spirit as Woman, Mother, Sister and Bride. This book deepens biblical understanding, explaining key verses that in the past were shrouded in mystery.
The MotherHeart of God will help both spiritual seekers and long-time Christians (of any denomination) to see God as the true source of Fatherhood and Motherhood, love and equality.
