by Laurel Ericson

Born in Roscommon, Ireland in 1888, Kittie McDermott is raised in a one-room cottage, the only daughter among ten children. Years after the Potato Famine, in which hundreds of thousands of people died of starvation, it is still a struggle for most families to put food on the table. While poverty and uncertainty is the reality, the Church is the constant that holds everyone together. Kittie is unaware of her good fortune to have a loving family to grow up in and a circle of close friends to depend on until a heart-breaking event occurs, changing her circumstances forever. Determined to make her life her own, she must endure the consequences of her actions, which takes her on a journey she never could have imagined.

Based on a true story, Katherine Elizabeth, Full of Grace will have you escaping to a quiet corner to read just one more chapter and is bound to make you wonder about your own ancestors and the lives they led before you were born.
