Elizabeth Ann Seton (1774-1821), whose name graces many schools, hospitals and parishes, is our first U.S.-born saint. Who was this extraordinary woman? Julie Walters, in this charming book aimed at young adults, brings Elizabeth to life and reveals the events that shaped her character and spirituality.

The author describes vividly and movingly Elizabeth's struggles as a child, teen, wife, mother and foundress of the American Sisters of Charity. As a result, readers will feel that they are peering into her soul, thoughts, emotions, struggles, sense of humor and love of God.

Reader appeal:
--a role model for teens of a tough-minded woman living a difficult life with immense strength, purpose, and character.
--an informative yet easily-read book for adults.
