Recommended Book

I've enjoyed this book overall. There are some parts that could have used better editing, for example pointing out to the author that Canton, OH is fairly well known by the majority of the male population of this country as the home of the Football Hall of Fame--he insulates that Canton is an obscure, unknown place to the overall population (it is the birthplace of Mother A). Much of the book is based on information obtained from Mother Angelica herself and she doesn't paint herself with a pretty brush and I think despite the fact that he works for her Raymond Arroyo has managed to present a very accurate picture of the real Mother Angelica--warts and all.
Fans of Mother Angelica will find this an interesting read, enemies of her will gain new insights into a very complex figure and likely future candidate for sainthood.
