Item description for Ella's Story: The Duchess Who Became a Saint by Maria Tobias & Bonnie Gillis...
Ella's Story, the Duchess Who Became A Saint, brings to life the amazing journey of Princess Elizabeth, from privileged childhood to eventual martyrdom.
While her biography, as St. Elizabeth the New Martyr, is available to adults, this is the first such book for girls, written in an approachable appealing style. Maria Tobias tells the Princess' story in such a lively way that the book is hard to put down. A true role model for today--Elizabeth, a real princess, is gifted with all those qualities girls still seek (intelligence, beauty, wealth, renown), converts to Orthodoxy and subsequently sheds all of this for the greater prize of the martyr's crown.

Captivating Apr 11, 2007
I was looking for a book about St. Elizabeth, the new martyr, for an elderly friend. This is all I found, but it will be a perfect way to start. It is so readable and captures the essence of this saint's life. It just took an hour or so to read. I could hardly put it down. I think it is good for all ages.
