Many thousands of believers have made pilgrimages to the locations of modern day sightings of the Virgin Mary across the United States. To investigate this phenomenon, journalist Mark Garvey visited nine of the sites, traveling coast to coast, talking to the faithful and the skeptical, listening to stories of contact with the divine. Waiting for Mary is a fascinating look at a world that is strange and captivating, moving, and in its way, miraculous.
