Linda Beatrice Brown was inspired to record her first audio CD of A Mother Knows Her Child after many attending her book readings commented that the “Mary poems” took on an even more vibrant and moving life when read by Linda. Inspiration soon led to collaboration on the project with harpist Ann Rose Borden and singer Catherine Wilson.
Since the recent October 1 audio release, there have been several live performances in late 2015. A big thanks is owed to everyone who attended the events. It was an amazing experience!

A Mother Knows Her Child: About the Poems:
In these poems, Linda Beatrice Brown has given us a dimension of Mother Mary that has not been fully explored, her very human self, her strength, sacrifice and wisdom. As women come into their own in our time, they are being met by violence and resistance at every turn. The author has given us a way to see the power of the Divine Feminine and perhaps more significantly, to take heart, and to recognize and affirm that power that is within ourselves.
From the author’s preface:
“I offer these poems and meditations to all of us, in humility and gratitude that we may see in the Mother’s face a way to heal ourselves. If you are reading this you know that we are in a time of massive change on our planet, a critical turning point for the earth and all her children. It is only through the heart that we can become who we are meant to be, that we can see ourselves as She sees us.”
