Rose of America
By Sara Maynard.
Imprimatur, 1943, 143 page book.
This portrait of Saint Rose of Lima is not intended as a formal biography for adult readers. Rather it is the story of a child told for children. At the age of four St. Rose began her life of mortification, and by the age of twelve she had reached the stage of perfect union with God; therefore she may truly be called a child saint. The facts and legends of her life have been interwoven, but there is no incident in this story bearing directly upon her life which has been invented.
