"Faith is a journey, and as Mary Lea Carroll shows in her delightful, insightful book, that journey can be both external and internal all at once."
-- Rick Hamlin, author of Pray for Me and executive editor of Guideposts

"Saint Everywhere is a gem of a book--delightful storytelling, factually fascinating, and spiritually uplifting. The right book for this moment in time when so many are on their own journey looking for the good in the everyday. I'm a fan of the lady saints, and now I'm a fan of Mary Lea Carroll. Saint Everywhere is a comfort and an inspiration."
-- Lian Dolan, Satellite Sister and author of Elizabeth the First Wife, Helen of Pasadena, and You're the Best

"What would it mean to live with the faith of a saint--either on a grand scale or in our own modest lives? With the effortless, heartfelt wit of Annie Lamott, Mary Lea Carroll whisks us along on a series of lively, serendipitous pilgrimages that leave us laughing, amazed, and ready to set off on our own miraculous adventures."
-- Perdita Finn, co-author of The Way of the Rose: The Forgotten Earth Wisdom of the Rosary

"Charming, funny, informative, moving, and spiritually profound, this little book delights the soul."

"[A] delightful piece of narrative nonfiction... Writing in an utterly unaffected tone and bringing a resonant universality to her musings, she invites readers to come along [with her]... readers will be all in for this journey--learning, enjoying, and pondering in equal measure."
-- Booklist
