I am delighted to announce that Veritas Press in Ireland has reissued the book "Leonie Martin: A Difficult Life" by Marie Baudoin-Croix, as an e-book.
Many English-speaking readers are familiar with this book from the earlier edition, translated by Mary Frances Mooney, published by Veritas in 1993 and reprinted by them in 2004. It had been distributed in the United States by Ignatius Press. I hope very much that it will be reissued in the United States, but, until it is, you can order one from Ireland by clicking on the image above. Many people have written me asking for copies. Many interested in Léonie were "special children" or the parents of special children. Others have had "late vocations" or, like Léonie, have struggled to find a place in a family, in the Church, and in the world. Of late, as interest in Léonie has increased and used copies became scarce, their price has risen. Seize the opportunity to get a new one. Do not be put off by the phrase "A Difficult Life," which might seem depressing. About this 120-page book, from the introduction by Christopher O'Donnell, O. Carm. of the Milltown Institute in Dublin:
