Catherine of Siena (1347-1380) has been a doctor of the church since 1970. History recalls that she was outspoken, as well as being a mystic, visionary, and prophet. During her brief life she involved herself in religious, political, and social issues of her time, and made her voice heard among world leaders.

This is a portrait of a driven woman who never ceased giving her life for her faith and the well being of her fellow man. What results is a real life portrait of a woman who experienced monumental crises such as the black plague, the Hundred Years' War, internecine fighting in Italy, and  papal exile in Avignon. This tertiary Dominican, who did not know how to read or write, became the confidant and critic of the powerful: princes, kings, bishops, and popes. The author, an eminent medievalist, brings this extraordinary woman alive in this riveting spiritual and historical biography.
