Clare: Her Light and Her Songis a vivid portrait of a strong woman who scandalizes family and friends to follow her beloved mentor, Francis of Assisi, in a life of joyous poverty. Thoroughly researched, this biography faithfully depicts Clare as seen by her contemporaries, including cardinals and popes. Her story is enriched by accounts of the wars, political intrigues, and towering figures of the tumultuous thirteenth century in which she played a significant role. The first woman to receive Papal approval for her own Rule of Life, Clare continues as a model for women of the twenty-first century.
Karen Karper Fredette spent thirty years in a Poor Clare Monastery and six years as a hermit. She has authored four books, includingWhere God Begins to Be:A Woman's Journey into Solitude, andConsider the Ravens: On Contemporary Hermit Life. Married in 1996, she continues her writing career on a secluded mountainside in North Carolina.
