In the green hills of Ireland long ago, when the Christian faith was yet young in the land, lived a girl whose simple faith and boundless kindness would change her homeland forever. Born a slave in the house of a chieftain, Brigid grew to be abbess over thousands of monastics in monasteries covering every facet of the Emerald Isle. Her love and care for all the people earned her a place as one of the two most beloved saints of Irish history, and one of the great female saints of all Christendom. The lyrical text and Celtic-inspired illustrations make The Life of Saint Brigid a book to be treasured by young and old, by those of Irish heritage and those who admire the faith and culture of this ancient land. A children's picture book for children four and up.
