Unveiling my new book cover!

Here's a draft of my new book cover. The cover will be fine-tuned and ready for print shortly, but I wanted to give you a visual since I'll be speaking about this book tomorrow morning on "Morning Air" on Relevant Radio (details for tuning in are here). My book will be released in September in time for the month of Mother Teresa's feast and twelfth anniversary of her death. I'll be taking pre-orders for autographed copies at my website: Donna Cooper O'Boyle.Com

Donna, I just got shivers. I have known about your relationship with Blessed Mother Teresa for a long time now, and I've truly felt that once the world knew of this beautiful relationship, your world was going to change even more than it has in the lead-up. How could it not? Her spirit has been with you all along, and even more powerfully in the ten years since her death. I am honored to know someone who was personally and indelibly affected by this amazing woman, and you are the perfect person to carry out her message of gentleness and love (Jesus' message, of course). I will be praying for you as you take this brave step into the world even beyond where you have been until now. Your friend and fellow mother of five, with hugs and blessings, Roxane

What a very sweet note from you! It's encouraging to hear these words from a friend, fellow author and mother of five!

Yes, this is a story that I can't wait to tell. I had a burning desire to tell Mother Teresa's story to continue her work. As I wrote, more and more was revealed, as much as I had tried to keep it all about her. I was encouraged to "tell the whole story" and that's what I tried to do. Pope John Paul II encouraged me too! I pray that it will inspire souls to come closer to Our Lord and His Blessed Mother.

Thanks again for your heart-warming words, Roxane!

Big hugs,
