American Saint: The Life of Elizabeth Seton by Joan Barthel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I'm not a religious person but I find it to be an interesting topic. I'd heard the name Seton before, as it survives in some of our present day institutions, but I didn't know anything about the family. As a history lesson alone, this was an interesting book. As a biography, it was a really good read about a fascinating woman I'd never heard of before. The only issue I had was the lack of punctuation in some of the letters made the read awkward but as they were direct quotes, I could understand.
