More About F. a. Forbes
Mother Frances Alice Monica Forbes, also known as F.A. Forbes, was born in 1869 into a Presbyterian family. She converted to Catholicism in 1900, and entered the Society of the Sacred Heart as a postulant when she was thirty-one. She was a strong-willed and intelligent woman, and used both these gifts to generously make the sacrifices that the Lord wished of her daily. F.A. Forbes authored a considerable amount of books based on the saints, including St. John Bosco: Friend of Youth, St. Monica, St. Catherine of Sienna, St. Benedict, and The Gripfast Series of English Readers. She died in 1936.
Reviews - What do customers think about St. Catherine of Siena?
A gem of a book on one of our greatest Saints! Oct 9, 2005
There are several biographies extant on St. Catherine of Siena, most notably by her spiritual director, Blessed Raymond of Capua, and an excellent volume written by Alice Curtayne, both available from TAN books. But my own favorite is a trim volume by F. A. Forbes, part of her seven books on Catholic Saints. Terse but extremely piognant. The author was a dramatist and a religious, making this volume a literary gem. The illustrations in this book, done by I don't know whom, also glitters. Loved it. You will too.
