Review: Holy Man: Father Damien of Molokai

User Review  - Jeanie Mccarthy Pityinger - Goodreads

Another wonderful book about this blessed, godly man and his work with the lepers... His was the first bio of a Saint that I'd read as a child, and as an adult, I can't read enough about him. Read full review
