Recommendations for Book about St. Monica?

Stephanie Z. writes:
I wondered if you have any recommendations for a good book on Saint Monica. Given all the book reviewing you do, I am hoping you might have one to recommend.
I don't, but there are so many readers dropping by here that maybe someone will put a good idea in the comments box.

Ideas, anyone?


  1. I'd love to know about it too. And while we're talking about books about saints, any recommendations on a book about St Anthony of Padua?

  2. I like the anthology titled "My Mother." It's all Augustine, but compiled and edited by Trape. Out of print, but easy to find. Falbo's "St. Monica: The Power of a Mother's Love" is also good.
