I love this book! I really love this book! I think this book is one of the most awesome books ever! Here’s why:
For every day of the year, you get a one page reading on an interesting chapter in American Catholic history. These stories include well-known people like Edgar Allan Poe and people you wish you knew like Margaret Haughery, an uneducated, illiterate businesswoman who rose above her past to raise $600,000 for charity and was buried with a crucifix from the pope! The history of the Catholic Church in America is a woefully unappreciated subcategory of Catholic history. We’ve been here since the beginning. Our story has high highs and low lows. It contains characters from all walks of life. We’ve done some great things and some not-so-great things.
One thing I can guarantee is, if your loved one is a Catholic nerd, they will never be bored with this book.
I got this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review. Buy it, you won’t regret it. And totally join me on Blogging for Books if you want free books to blog about.
