Despite living in a culture opposed to her faith, St. Brigid stood firm, continuing to pour out her life in service to those around her, as an offering to God - definitely a role-model for women in any age! "The Life of St. Brigid" is a treasure for which I am truly grateful!
The font has the look of a handwritten uncial alphabet, which seems appropriate, and goes beautifully with the Celtic-inspired illustration. If you purchase it for Kindle, it is best read on an iPad or other tablet that can display two-page spreads in color. It loses much of the spirit of joy when seen in single pages on a black and white e-reader.
Though I was familiar with both the author and illustrator from excellent earlier books, (Meyers - "The Man and the Vine", Lynch - "St. Patrick: Enlightener of Ireland"), I was extremely impressed by "The Life of St. Brigid, Abbess of Kildare." Not only have I bought copies for the special children in my life, I have also sent it other adult celtophiles, as it will surely encourage and inspire readers of all ages! Highly recommended!

A gift for a Brijit. I like Irish stories and the art is bright, and colorful with Celtic style. This is an older (7-11) children's story. Satisfied.Published on February 13, 2011 by Amazon Customer
