In this warm retelling of the story of Our Lady of Fatima, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle unfolds vividly the mysterious radiant holy Lady who suddenly appeared to three peasant farm children in Portugal.
At a tumultuous time when the First World War was at its height and Portuguese farm families were devastated by the horrors of the Great War, miraculous events mysteriously occurred in 1916 and again in 1917 in an obscure little agricultural hamlet in Portugal.
As Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta were grazing their flock of sheep, a great white Angel emerged, preparing the little shepherds’ hearts and souls for what was to come. Soon, the Queen of Heaven appeared over a little holm oak tree, bringing many graces and important messages about penance, prayer, and peace. She even performed a miracle—the Great Miracle of the Sun – to prove her message was from Heaven, a message that would wake up the sleepy village and ultimately change the world!
Award-winning author and journalist, catechist, and EWTN television host Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle’s love for children and family shines through these pages. A master storyteller, she now presents this authentic book which reads like a page-turning novel for children ages seven to one hundred and seven.
"I highly recommend this book not just for children, but for all adults as well. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!"
-Fr. Miguel Marie Soeherman, M.F.V.A.
