Mary Sees All (Book 1)
Mary Sees All - the Race to Save Jesus from the Cross, is a fast paced historical fiction set near Jerusalem during the fateful week that Jesus was crucified. Mary has a unique point of view, a lyrical voice, and a gift for drama. Both outrageous and outcast, she is an unforgettable heroine in this, the first of three books about the residents of ancient Bethany.

This novel is the first in a four book series called, "Bethany's People," that is set in first century Judea/Palestine. Mary Sees All takes place in the two weeks between Jesus's resurrection of Lazarus and his own crucifixion. It really does describe a race to keep Jesus from dying. Each of Jesus’ friends have their own gifts to give and their own adventure live. They each hope to be successful in preventing Jesus’ execution. My retelling of Holy Week reaffirms the courage of otherwise common people. In the final chapters both the reader and these biblical characters are brought to a deeper, more authentic understanding of God’s grace.

Early reviewers say:
- “I absolutely loved the depth I found in Mary Sees All”
- “Bill Kemp fleshes out each character, as well as, Bethany’s world”
- “Too often religious fiction books present the events of the Bible as foregone conclusions. Kemp’s work has real people struggling with an unknown future”
