A Memoir

Regular price$17.95

Catherine Doherty calls herself “a woman in love with God,” and she is a born storyteller. These memoirs read like an adventure novel, bringing to life her childhood in Russia, the traumas of war and revolution, and the hardships of immigration to Canada.

She goes on to describe how God called her to give up everything to follow him. As people join her, she organizes Friendship House in Toronto to serve those suffering from the hardships of the Great Depression. After Friendship House’s forced closure, we follow her to Europe where she is caught in the onset of World War II, to Harlem where she opens an interracial apostolate, and finally to Combermere and the evolution of the Madonna House community.

“Catherine lived through some of the more tumultuous moments of the 20th century…. The pace of her life seems never to have let up. As gripping as the facts of Catherine’s life are, her real story lies in the realm of the spirit. Her writing is conversational, very personal.” — New Covenant

“Catherine writes from the heart—with a wealth of anecdote based on personal experience—to relate spiritual values to earthly realities. She never bores…” — Fr. A. Foy, C.SS.R., Redemptorist Publications
