The God Box book

Mary Lou QuinlanMary Lou Quinlan is an author, speaker, TV personality and advocate for women. She has written inspirational features for national magazines including Real Simple, O, the Oprah Magazine, and More, and is the author of the books Just Ask a Woman, Time Off for Good Behavior, and What She’s Not Telling You. Her newest book, The God Box, Sharing my mother’s gift of faith, love and letting go, became a New York Times best-seller in three weeks.

When Mary Lou Quinlan’s beloved mother, Mary Finlayson, dies, her family is left bereft—until Quinlan finds her mother’s "God Box," or rather, boxes. Note by note, Quinlan unearths insights into her mother’s compassion, faith, and perseverance, and revelations of her innermost thoughts—nostalgic, surprising, and even a bit shocking. And through the journey, the author discovers her own more empathetic, more engaged self—the woman her mother had believed in all along.

Adapted from her book, Mary Lou Quinlan performs "The God Box: A Daughter’s Story," her one-act, one-woman play. The performance has raised almost $100,000 for charities across the country in less than six months.

It’s a celebration of love that encompasses the bond between a mother and her daughter, the partnership between a husband and wife, and the connection between a woman and her community, The God Box is a gift for every human being who, regardless of beliefs, trusts in the enduring power of family and friendship.
