The Story of Saint Genevieve
Phillip Campbell, author of the best-selling The Story of Civilization series from TAN Books, returns to offer young Catholics a dramatic historical account of the life of Saint Genevieve of Paris.
Matron of Paris follows the journey of Genevieve from her childhood as a shepherdess to becoming the beloved abbess and advocate of the Christians of Paris. Along the way, she encounters a host of notable characters from history, including Saint Patrick, King Clovis, Saint Clotilde, and more!
Set against the backdrop of the collapse of the Roman Empire and rise of the Merovingians, this is a rousing tale of perseverance, grace, and finding the will of God in the circumstances of life, even the most trying. Written in an engaging narrative style and beautifully illustrated throughout, Matron of Paris will give young readers a deep appreciation for the life and accomplishments of one of the Church's most influential and extraordinary saints of the early Middle Ages.
Suitable for ages 10 and up.
