Notre Dame, IN: Ave Maria Press, 1979. First Edition. Hardcover. Signed on title page. 206 pages. Illustrations. DJ has some wear, soiling, edge tears and chips. Front board has some weakness. A journey into Catherine's life, disclosing the mysteries of world events that shaped her; the mysteries of her leadership and her marriage; and, most of all, the mysteries of God's love. With 40 photographs. Intensely personal experiences forged Catherine Doherty s heart and spirit as a child living in exotic places, as a youth caught up in the Russian Revolution, as a young woman struggling as a refugee in foreign lands. Catherine can be said to have done it all but, unlike many, she did it all for Christ and in some of the most unlikely places and ways! How, why and where she did it are breathtakingly revealed in Fragments of My Life. The pace of her life never lets up. The reader meets a woman of joy, humor, suffering and sheer exuberance, who shares, in a conversational and very personal way, her painful, growing experiences as a disciple who attempts to live the Gospel. Fragments of My Life is really a love story the story of young love, mature love; love of God and people, person by person. The telling is itself an act of love, uttered in trust, but not without risk. Catherine Doherty emerges from these pages as a woman to contend with, a heroic Christian example for our times.
