Jenny Seedsman narrates this biography of Mary MacKillop, the first saint of Australia, with the gravity and sincerity a saint deserves. Seedsman's accent and tone permit the listener to visualize the demeanor and personality of the determined Sister Mary, who founded the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Sacred Heart in 1866. Throughout excommunication and accusations of alcoholism, Mary's steadfast faith in the Lord’s purpose for her is exactly what led to her beatification. Seedman conveys the Aussie national pride for this saint throughout the audiobook, which also serves as an introduction to the work of the Roman Catholic Church in Australia.
