Follow in the footsteps of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Elizabeth Bayley was born of a well-to-do family in 1774 and baptized in the Episcopal Church. After the death of her husband, William Magee Seton and her subsequent conversion to Catholicism, Elizabeth was no longer accepted in her previous social and family circles, leaving her a poor widow with five young children. At the invitation of Bishop Carroll, Elizabeth relocated her family to Baltimore, where she founded a school. She was soon joined by other women and formed the Daughters of Charity of Saint Joseph, serving as the first superior of that order. By the time of her death in 1821, Mother Seton’s community had established schools and orphanages in North America, South America and Italy. Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton was canonized by Pope Paul VI in 1975. Serve God always Knowing wealth but no stranger to poverty, devoted spouse and mother, committed religious, generous heart—Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton has become a model of sanctity to people in all walks of life in America and throughout the world.

In this riveting biography of Elizabeth Seton critically acclaimed and bestselling author Joan Barthel tells the mesmerizing story of a woman whose life featured wealth and poverty, passion and sorrow, love and loss. Elizabeth was born into a prominent New York City family in 1774. Her father was the chief health officer for the Port of New York and she lived down the block from Alexander Hamilton. She danced at George Washington's sixty-fifth Birthday Ball wearing cream slippers, monogrammed. Catholicism was illegal in New York when she was born; Catholic priests seen in the city were arrested, sometimes hung. When Elizabeth and her wealthy husband Will sailed to Italy in a doomed attempt to cure his tuberculosis, she and her family were quarantined in a damp dungeon. And when Elizabeth later became a Catholic, she was so scorned that people talked of burning down her house. American Saint is the inspiring story of a brave woman who forged the way for the other women who followed and who made a name for herself in a world entirely ruled by men. Elizabeth resisted male clerical control of her religious order, as nuns are doing today, and the publication of her story could not be more timely. Maya Angelou has contributed the foreword.
