I am LOVING this book ... I read a half-dozen to a dozen of these amazing letters St. Gianna wrote to her husband. Her life was pretty tough -- full of illness and separation and death -- and yet she is ALWAYS so full of joy.

This is definitely one to read and re-read. Also, this would be a great book for parishes to give to their Pre-Cana attendees!
