The Fallen is a simple book about forgiveness that touches your heart. The Fallen engages the reader, in word and image, with a metaphor, a stick…abused and transformed.
If you or someone you know is dealing with a heavy burden of guilt or struggling with the act of forgiveness, this story can help remove the weight. Mary wrote the story for a man who was serving a life sentence inside a Nebraska prison. When he received the manuscript, he began illustrating it.
The book has been shared with prisons all over the U.S. and in several countries. It has been used in victim impact classes and in classrooms to address conflict resolutions.
