Synopsis: The 100th Anniversary of the death of the foundress became the impetus for Sister Clementine to complete the biography she had begun over twenty years ago. The story of the incredible Franciska Lechner begins in Bavaria with her birth in 1833 and allows the reader to experience the transition from Francie, the precocious and delightful little girl to Fanny, the young woman determined to fulfill the will of God, and, finally, to the mature Mother Franciska, foundress of a religious congregation which would eventually spread throughout Europe to North and South America. Sister Clementine's poetic, magical style brings to life the sadness and heartache, the joy and triumph of the fledgling religious order, as Mother Franciska charms the 19th Century hierarchy, royalty, and aristocrats. No one is a stranger to Mother Franciska from the reigning popes to the reigning emperors! This is a story which should be read by every one, especially women, Catholic of not. No glass ceilings here! Schools, orphanages, teacher-training schools, retreat centers and churches are built without the benefit of telephone, computer or fax machines! One cannot help but admire Franciska's energy and business acumen nor fail to be inspired by her deep, unshakable faith evn in the face of grief, slander, and betrayal.
