Blessed Marie of New France: The Story of the First Missionary Sisters in Canada
"It's almost upon us!" yelled a frantic voice as the ship neared the iceberg. "God's Will be done," prayed Mother Marie. If God wanted her to drown in the icy Atlantic Ocean before ever reaching Canada, His Holy Will be done. Yet perhaps . . . This book tells what happened next, plus the many other adventures that met the Sisters who brought the Holy Catholic Faith to Canada.
The author, Mary Fabyan Windeatt, lived from 1910-1979 and grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada. She is most renowned for her many novels of the saints, which she wrote specifically for children, including lives on the Children of Fatima, Cure of Ars, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Rose of Lima and many others.
