The Mary of Schoemperlen's imagination is a considerate houseguest, a witty conversationalist, an avid reader, a breaker of diet resolutions, a shrewd shopper, and a congenial companion.

On an otherwise typical Monday morning, a middle-aged writer enters her living room and finds a woman standing by her fig tree. The woman is wearing a blue trench coat, white sneakers, and a white shawl over her hair. She is holding a purse and a suitcase. She is the Virgin Mary - and after 2000 years of petition, adoration, and traveling, she's in need of a little R & R. Invited in for lunch, Mary decides to stay for one week, during which an unlikely friendship develops.
A Novel of Mary, Faith, and Friendship. by Diane Schoemperlen. The narrator, a fussy but endearing writer in her 40s who lives in some northern suburb, seems an unlikely candidate for divine visitation.

Despite the casual slacks, brown cardigan, and sneakers, there is no doubt this is indeed the Mother of God.
