KIRKUS REVIEW

Those who enjoyed So Falls The Elm Tree will be equally charmed with this new biography of another remarkable Roman Catholic. This book, however, will reach a far wider public as Elea St. John Eckel's life is nothing if not colorful. From the slums of New York with Maria Monk, her drunken mother who wrote the Awful Disclosures to discredit the Catholic sisterhoods, to the Court of Napoleon III, and eventually back to America and New York where she founded her little Catholic church. A strange, dramatic story.
