We follow Elizabeth Seton, first American-born saint of the Roman Catholic Church, throughout her life. We see how she was influenced by her father, her husband, children, and by a whole galaxy of life-long friends. Woven through this account is the spiritual progress of her life, through her conversion to Catholicism, the founding of the Sisters of Charity, and her work in Maryland. This portrait of a very special woman reveals her as a warm-hearted human with a great gift for friendship.
