Bernadette speaks: A life of Saint Bernadette Soubirous in her own words by Rene’ Laurentin

This is a different kind of Saint’s biography: it is written like a novel, as there are dialogues, actions and original photos from the time. We get to know Bernadette from birth to death, her feelings, her humility and faith, the interviews and the ill treatment she had to endure, her health problems.

This book has all excellent reviews by the people who have read it. Father Laurentin is one of the foremost Marian theologians of our times, and his research on the apparitions at Lourdes (a work in 30 volumes) culminated in this book.
