Annabelle of Anchony: Burdens of the Mind

Product Review (submitted on March 30, 2020):
The Catholic Faith is weaved into the story, as natural as your faith is weaved into your daily life, with prayers to the Father, and His answer back. The Sacraments are also weaved naturally into the story, and is not heavy handed preaching. Annabelle, a Catholic Medieval princess, deprived of the Blessed Sacrament on the island weeps with joy when she finally finds herself in His presence. During this time with our churches shut down due to the Coronavirus Pandemic of 2020, we can relate to this hunger for The Holy Eucharist. So it’s an appropriate book to read during your downtime in this isolation. So this Winner of the 2013 Catholic Arts and Letter Awards does indeed build a vibrant Catholic literary culture in her book. I recommend it.
