Mary Haskett, Author

Writing to Inspire. Speaking to Encourage

"Mary Haskett's journey is one that none of us would choose! Her captivating account of it, however, sweeps the reader up in the experience, as her extraordinary ability to portray details engages all the senses. A surprising story, from a life of an abandoned inter-racial child in an English convent, to choices that marked the direction of her adult life, to the encounter with grace that shapes all that follows."

"An obvious gifted story-teller, Mary writes this riveting account of her own life with heart-warming honesty, charming humor, and great doses of grace. In all of it-her birth in unusual circumstances, her childhood joys and struggles in war-torn England, her great loves and painful disappointments, and her inspiring walk with her best friend-there is never a dull moment.

Mary has given us a great treasure: A beautiful story, beautifully told."

"Mary Haskett tells a story of brokenness--scandal, violation, betrayal--the pain of being human that touches us all. But hers, and ours, is also a story of redemption, of healing. As she recounts her life with candour and prose, Haskett opens a window to the divine and gives us hope."
