"These stories," the author explains, "are meant to show human and lovable people whose mysterious passion for God led them into preposterous escapades." With an eye on the taste of a child for concrete detail and no apologies for "the embroidery of legend," each tale, in a style akin to fairy-tale, sets forth the unique qualities of a Genevieve, a Felix, a Dorothy, or Comgall--16 real saints brought unforgettably to our attention and admiration.
"There is great variety in those chosen. The stories vary in length but all are short enough for a bed-time story. My own children were not content with one or even three, but begged for more and more. Although written for children, like all great stories they are riveting for grown-ups, too.... The stories are inspiring to read: quirky, funny, romantic and mysterious. Some of them have a particular moral and practical message.... Above all, what shines through the stories is the courage of the saints and their total trust in the goodness and love of God. An excellent book to read, give away and share."
