I bought this book to give to my boss for mothers day - her name just happens to be Monica.
Being the parent of a child who has left the church, I often prayed to Saint Monica. Afterall she prayed for St. Augustine for many years. After a particular upsetting discussion with my child, I decided I needed to know more about St. Monica and I was so surprised but not disappointed to read about her life and her constant prayers to God for her son. She has certainly enhanced my need to pray not only for my child, but so many family members who have left the church. I cannot stop and I will not.
I so love her. Quick to read and fills you with hope! Have already recommended it to others Best Uses: Gift, Travel Reading, Younger Readers; Describe Yourself: Casual Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Engaging characters, Informative, Page-Turner, Well Written
