Description
In the fog-bound forests of North Fork, Washington, a sixteen-year-old runaway sees a vision of the Virgin Mary, changing the life of the community. An unlikely candidate for revelation, Ann Holmes is an itinerant mushroom picker who is waifish and sickly, lives in a tent, and can barely afford to buy food. Her vision poses a challenge to a young priest, Father Collins, who is wrestling with the struggles of his calling and must evaluate the nature of the girl's vision.

display_description

From David Guterson--bestselling author of Snow Falling on Cedars--comes this emotionally charged, provocative novel about what happens when a fifteen-year-old girl becomes an instrument of divine grace.

Ann Holmes is a fragile, pill-popping teenaged runaway who receives a visitation from the Virgin Mary one morning while picking mushrooms in the woods of North Fork, Washington. In the ensuing days the miracle recurs, and the declining logging town becomes the site of a pilgrimage of the faithful and desperate. As these people flock to Ann--and as Ann herself is drawn more deeply into what is either holiness or madness--Our Lady of the Forest--seamlessly splices the miraculous and the mundane.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
