In this compelling biography, Madeline Nugent unfolds the story of St. Clare and her sisters. Inspired by St. Francis and his ideal of holy poverty, Clare left everything to follow Christ. This decision meant conflict with her family and an uncertain future, but Clare never wavered. Her small group of followers took root, and the new foundation, eventually called the Poor Clares, flowered throughout the world. Nugent bases her work on extensive research, time spent in Assisi, and interviews with Franciscan experts. On this solid foundation, she builds Clare's story through vignettes of various characters, some historical, some fictional, creating an authentic biography with the appeal of a novel.
