KIRKUS REVIEW

Another retelling of the story of Rose of Lime (see report on Unlikely Saints) (P. 528), this time designed for young people's reading rather than for adults. The story of a child, set apart early in life from other children by her yearning for the life of a religious, by her assumption of the path of pain. She faced the choice of marriage or entering a convent, and eventually became a Third Order Nun, living at home, working for the poor and particularly the Indian people. 17th century Lime forms the setting for this story. Definitely a Catholic market.
