Review of “Marie Durand”


It is a pleasure to find an author that you trust and whose books you enjoy reading, and Simonetta Carr never fails!

Not only is Carr’s Christian Biographies for Young Readers series well-researched and written to appeal to readers of all ages, but the books are high-quality hardcovers that will hold up to years of reading.

The newest installment, Marie Durand tells the story of a young French woman who endured great suffering, and many trials, yet never wavered in her faith, and was a constant encouragement to both her family, and those who came into contact with her. Imprisoned for her faith for nearly forty years, Marie Durand left a legacy of faithfulness that is sure to touch the hearts of readers.

I thoroughly enjoyed Marie Durand, and cannot recommend it, and the other books in the Christian Biographies for Young Readers series, highly enough. Ideal for reading as a family, it would also be a helpful addition to homeschool curriculum, or a wonderful introduction for those new to the story of Marie Durand. I would give the book an “A”.

The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
