Item description for Our Lady Came to Fatima (Vision Books) by Christopher J. Pelicano & Ruth Fox Hume...
Overview Who would have thought that the Blessed Mother would choose to come to Fatima, that remote farming village on a rocky slope in Portugal? No one was more surprised than Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco, the little shepherds to whom she appeared in 1917. In this 27th volume of the acclaimed Vision Books series for youth, readers will be enthralled by the story of the village and its people, of the scornful neighbors and the puzzled parents. Above all, it is the warmly human story of the three little ones who insisted that Our Lady had indeed come to Fatima, and from whose faith grew one of the greatest spiritual movements of our time. Illustrated.

Imagination not History Jun 26, 2006
There a million of books like this: totally written with the believer's heart, not with any sense of historical critics and hermeneutics of the language under the cultural background of the little threee shepherds at Fatima, 1917. Only legend here and a maximum of crediblity to all and one of the words that the Catholic Church admited as the possible true to explain the events. We could not expect more from a foreigner author that possibly can not read Portuguese nor the original documents of the secret archive at Fatima sanctuary. The true documented Fatima history is in books like "Heavenly Lights" or "Celestial Secrets" whatever the believers or skeptics may think about.
