by Ann Ball. This collection of short biographies of many different saints is very interesting to read. Even though they are short biographies, they are packed with information about the saints. The book is also illustrated with photos of each of the saints, except in a few cases where no photograph exists.
My family's pastor read some of the stories from it at a Confirmation retreat, and I found the stories he read interesting. Since the library had the book, I read it and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is definitely one which I would recommend.
