 Our Description

Julie Walters

Elizabeth Bayley Seton, or Mother Seton as she is often called, was a member of New York's high society . . . wife, mother, then widow . . . famous convert . . . founder of the American Sisters of Charity . . . and finally canonized saint.  This dramatized account of her life includes all these well-known highlights, as well as the lesser-known suffering she endured along the way - being virtually abandoned by her father as a child, her long quarantine in an Italian prison while her husband lay dying in her arms, her intense persecution by New York society when she converted to Roman Catholicism, and her struggles with church authority while she was establishing her community.  Through it all shines her absolute reliance on God and her deep sense of his intimate presence.

"The persona and story of Elizabeth Ann Seton:  Saint for a New Nation rings true and nurtures one's soul while also providing enjoyable reading.  Julie Walters' creative and interesting style portrays the warmth, depth, and complexity of a woman whose journey of faith led her from the Episcopal to the Roman Catholic Church, from the society of New York to the mountains of Maryland, leaving in her wake a rich legacy of charity and spirituality, especially through the American Sisters of Charity, her spiritual daughters."
- Betty Ann McNeil, D.C., Archivist, Daughters of Charity
