I love this book...what a wonderful introduction on how the Communion of Saints can change our lives. Â (http://www.discerninghearts.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Colleen-Carroll-Campbell.jpg)Colleen Carroll Campbell writes a beautiful memoir that not only chronicles the Â important passages of life she's traveled thus far, but she also shares the guidance and insight she has received from several "sister" saints she has met along the way...St. Teresa of Avila, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Faustina, St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein), Bl. Teresa of Calcutta and, of course, the Queen and Mother of them all, The Blessed Virgin Mary. Â This work is more than just aÂ catalogingÂ of the events of her life or facts about these incredible women, Colleen shares a compelling story that is truly a page turner. Â It was a book that brought Â great joy and peace to my heart; itÂ helped me Â to reflect on, and appreciate more fully, those wonderful members of the "Cloud of Witnesses" who have touched my life....what a true gift God has given us in the Communion of the Saints. Â A Â HIGHLY recommended book on all levels.
