Item Description...
Overview
Since her canonization in October 2000, interest in St. Katharine Drexel has flourished. Her riches-to-rags experience turns the conventional American success story upside down. Why would a millionaire heiress leave a life of luxury for a life of poverty and service? The answer is found in the compelling tale of a woman who knew intimately both the streets of Paris and the streets of Harlem...who crossed the ocean on luxury liners yet paddled the backwaters of the Louisiana bayou...who dined with equal ease in the mansions of high society or the tent of a Lakota tribal chief. Drexel's life was the adventure of an indomitable woman who gave herself to those who were oppressed - and taught the world the meaning of fearless love.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A �Quick Read� that took me through troubling times  Jul 17, 2003
First let me say I am neither a reader nor a writer, so this review will be plain spoken and direct. Having said that, be aware that this book has lifted me up and sailed me through my troubling times. I read this book in the waiting room while my mother was having open hear surgery. I read this book to my mother during her recovery. What a blessing this book was for the both of us! I read this book while struggling with the news of sexual abuse of boys in the Catholic Church. Again, this book pulled me through. I am so grateful that I can retreat to this book, in that while reading I can be at peace while experiencing the life of such a wonderful SAINT! This book has and continues to remind me that just because I don't see others around me helping those less fortunate than they or I, that is no excuse for me not to do so. Thank you so very much Mary van Balen Holt for this wonderful book!

Finally an accessible saint!  Feb 12, 2003
What an interesting and inspiring book! Woven carefully into Katherine Drexel's biographical information are intimate glimpses into her discernment of the direction her life would take. Through her personal writings and correspondance, and rich stories from her family life, we witness her spiritual growth and celebrate with her the crystalization of her unique call. Mary vanBalen Holt has presented us with a truly accessible saint whose circumstances, though likely quite different from our own, provide us with insight into the choices we all must make in discerning and following our individual roads to holiness. Katharine Drexel's story is fascinating. The breadth of her life experiences, the selflessness of sharing her personal fortune, the extent of her impact on the lives of countless poor and oppressed people in the United States, and the depth of her devotion to her God and to his work on earth, is an inspiration to all of us. It is also an affirmation of that little voice we each hear within ourselves.
One life, when lived prayerfully and courageously, can touch countless others. Mary vanBalen Holt's conversational writing style makes this book easy to read and its message easy to take to heart.
