Reassuring

Listening to this wonderful story of a remarkable woman is like spending a few hours meditating. The narrator's voice is confident and very soothing as she unfolds the story of the life of an incredible woman! More of us should read, listen and learn about the Saints. We need more good and uplifting TRUE stories in this modern world to heal our souls. I found this listen to be a wonderful escape on a Sunday afternoon.

Powerful and inspiring, well read and produced.

An amazing story about an amazing woman whom God choose for an important work in Sweden and the entire Church. The reader should expect to be awed and entertained as this well read book inspires them to greater belief that they too are called to be an instrument of God grace in this world.
- Fr. Mark Ivany

Like wading through treacle!

This was published in 1909 so the vituperative anti-Protestant slant would have been more acceptable then than it is now. Bridget is generally reckoned to have been one of the least attractive saints, and there is nothing in this book to make me reconsider. What surprises me is the very unequal quality of production from Patristics Publications: this reader carries the odour of sanctity to extremes and I staggered to the end of the book only because there is nothing better available. This is very important work and a dedicated outfit like Patristic needs to research more and find readers who can carry the text without my having to reach for a bucket!
