"Ghezzi . . . offers simple but engagingly written accounts of the lives of twenty-four saints of considerable variety. . . . Highly recommended."
"Although many of the mystics examined will be familiar to many, Ghezzi does manage to offer some new and interesting insights into their lives and times."
