I received this book as a gift & was unsure about reading it. I had caught a glance of Mother Angelica on the EWTN channel while channel surfing, but did not know her at all. This story is amazing and will hold your attention every step of the way. I have not had a dull moment yet reading this remarkable story of a faith-filled woman who never saw an obstacle that she could not overcome to reach her goal of carrying out God's will. Mother Angelica overcame many hurdles in a long life of hard work with the purpose of sharing the Word. A life of prayer and hard work and mind boggling miracles will truly inspire you.
