by Emmeline Garnet is a really good book. Although we often read about Florence Nightangale, we rarely read about the nuns and nurses who helped her.
P.S. There is a poem about her in Book of Americans, by Rosemary and Stephen Vincent Benet.

by Mary Fabyan Windeatt is a really good biography about St. Margaret Mary Alacoque; the Visitation nun who saw and heard Our Lord many times. Even when she wasn't believed by many, she did not get upset that she wasn't believed. (She was dissapointed though.) St. Margaret can teach us many virtues, especially the three following: faith, patience, and humility. This book would make a great read-aloud for a Catholic family.
