A princess conceived after the prayerful conversion of her parents, Philomena was always special. She vowed herself to Jesus at a young age and was soon put through the ultimate test: the test of her love for her Spouse. This is the incredible true story of a girl who knew that Jesus is worth everything and that her purity was worth dying for! The young author's personal connection to St. Philomena's intercession makes this story even more poignant.
Author Courtney Lee has always had a strong connection to her favorite saint, Philomena. Courtney's mother had repeated ultrasounds while she was in utero, revealing serious abnormalities. Her mother was advised to seek genetic counseling which she knew was a euphamism for abortion. Courtney's family stormed Heaven with prayer and begged the intercession of St. Philomena ( a patron of children). Courtney was not stillborn, and born without one single abnormality. At an early age, Courtney was given a large picture from Italy of St. Philomena by her Godparents. Her devotion and dedication to this courgeous saint has grown stronger with each passing year compelling her to write this wonderful book.
