In My Sisters the Saints, author Colleen Carroll Campbell blends her personal narrative of spiritual seeking, trials, stumbles, and breakthroughs with the stories of six women saints who profoundly changed her life: Teresa of Avila, Therese of Lisieux, Faustina of Poland, Edith Stein of Germany, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and Mary of Nazareth. Drawing upon the rich writings and examples of these extraordinary women, the author reveals Christianity’s liberating power for women and the relevance of the saints to the lives of contemporary Christians.

My Sister’s the Saints as an enjoyable read. Campbell doesn’t hold anything back. Recounting her faith journey from her college years into her career, marriage and family life she accurately records her experiences. I felt as though I was reading her diary, she managed to capture the passion and emotions she felt in those moments, its as if she was writing it on that day. It is one of those books that is very easy to read and one that encourages you to grow in faith and to be grateful for what you have. What she shared about her Father’s struggle with Alzheimer’s really opened my eyes to toll it takes on family and challenges that come as the condition progresses. I would highly recommend this book.
