Most of us know Mary, the mother of Jesus, and her husband Joseph from the Bible. But we don't get a good sense of who they are as people. Bestselling author Elizabeth Berg takes on this challenge in her novel "The Handmaid and the Carpenter." Join Lori and Alice as they discuss the Holy Family as real, ordinary people, who faced enormous challenges and influenced, perhaps more than any other human beings, Jesus Christ himself. The book is not without controversies, so be prepared to challenge your beliefs and see Mary and Joseph in a whole, new light!
