From the popular Vision Book Series
of saint biographies by Ignatius Press
. This book tells the story of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. Although she lived most of her life in a castle surrounded by incredible wealth, she longed to live the kind of poverty she heard about through the Franciscans and became a member of the Third Order of St. Francis. Her subjects were never able to grow accustomed to the queen who lived the life of a saint, but they always appreciated her generosity and saw in her such simplicity and holiness.
