      Editorial Reviews
      From Publishers Weekly
      In a comprehensive and engaging biography, Arroyo chronicles the life
      and faith of Mother Angelica, the nun who almost singlehandedly
      created a religious media empire through her Catholic cable network,
      EWTN. Born in 1923 to unstable parents (a cruel father who later
      abandoned the family and a chronically depressed mother), Mother
      Angelicaâ€"then called Rita Rizzoâ€"is an unlikely person to have redrawn
      the landscape of Catholicism in America. The strength of Arroyo's
      biography is what he calls his "unfettered access" to records,
      associates and the nun herself; as an anchor and news director for
      EWTN, he's known her for years. But this is not purely a
      sweetness-and-light portrait; she comes across as outspoken and
      sometimes hot tempered, arguing with cardinals and even hurling a
      knife at a sharp-tongued uncle when she was 17. Overall, Arroyo gives
      a strong sense of the woman who enrages liberals, delights
      conservatives, but is respected by almost all Catholics. (Sept. 6)

      “In this dramatic page-turner, Raymond Arroyo has captured the life
      and lessons of Mother Angelica, a woman who may well be the patron
      saint of CEOs. Buy this book and be inspired.”
      â€"Lee Iacocca, The Iacocca Foundation, former chief executive officer
      of the Chrysler Corporation

      “Raymond Arroyo masterfully captures the complexities, humanity, and
      tenacity of Mother Angelica, who has long been one of my own personal
      heroes. The founder of the Eternal Word Television Network, Mother
      Angelica is a woman who dared to dream, to stand up for what she
      believed in, and whose faith showed that anything is possible. In
      Arroyo’s hands, she becomes someone you wish you had the opportunity
      to know and love. Read this book and believe.”
      â€"Nicholas Sparks

      “This is some woman. What a wonderful story Raymond Arroyo has
      writtenâ€"wonderful because it’s true, because he got the facts, because
      she chose him to tell them, and because he’s a born storyteller.”
      â€"Peggy Noonan, author of When Character Was King

      “Mother Angelica’s personal words to me, her courageous example, and
      her constant prayers helped inspire my portrayal of Jesus in The
      Passion of the Christ. No one could have captured the essence of this
      modern-day saint better than Raymond Arroyo. His narrative gifts and
      understanding of Mother are clearly evident in this truthful and often
      candid depiction of one nun’s struggle to bring God to the multitudes.
      Surely this book, and Mother’s life will have an incredible enduring
      â€"James Caviezel, actor

      “Mother Angelica is one of the greatest entrepreneurs of all time, and
      is truly one of my heroes. With his “insider” perspective, Raymond
      Arroyo has done a masterful job capturing not only Mother’s
      immeasurable accomplishments but also her remarkable personality. Like
      Mother herself, this book has the unique combination of being both
      inspiring and entertaining.”
      â€"Thomas S. Monaghan, founder of Domino’s Pizza and Chancellor of Ave
      Maria University

      “A rattling good story of fear, faith, courage, and bulldog tenacity,
      beautifully told. The drama of Mother Angelica’s life is a powerful
      reminder that the extraordinary lies just beyond the ordinaryâ€"if we
      have eyes to see and ears to hear.”
      â€"George Weigel, author of Witness to Hope:Tthe Biography of Pope John
      Paul II
