The Testament of Mary imagines a time after twenty years of Jesus Christ�s crucifixion where Mary is shown grieving her son's fate. The book pictures Mary trying hard to understand why the people considered her son as the son of God. The book reveals that after the devastating and disastrous event, Mary is left mourning her son's unexpected departure from the world. It also pictures the plight of Mary who keeps wondering what she could have done differently, in order to change her son's destiny. The Testament of Mary portrays a heavy-hearted Mary, who has lost her son, escaping and living in seclusion from the world. She lives in constant fear, which is brought by memories of the brutal death of her son. For the mother, her son was a vulnerable and unguarded figure, who was constantly surrounded by people unworthy of trust. This story tries to picture the mother living in a time, where drastic changes and turmoil are evident. In the story, Mary eventually breaks her silence and steps forward to present the truth about her son's death.
