This book not only gives a concise biography of the saintly woman but also shows the relevance of having such people in human history. People like St. Gianna are able to make courageous and difficult decisions because of divine grace and divine mercy. The spiritual reservoir available to her is available to everyone and anyone. Hence, her sanctity need not be so rare and unique as long as all of us are willing to follow her example of total trust in divine providence and complete fidelity to the Will of God. Best of all, this book gives facts and it gives hope. Hope in prayerful meditation on the life of St. Gianna the implications for the reader to be and to do better as a devout believer.
