Any history of early medieval England would not be complete without mentioning two influential saints of the seventh century. For God Alone tells the story of St. Hilda and St. Elfleda of Whitby. Where does one begin to relate the glorious lives of two women who did so much?
Author H.E. Brown gives an in-depth historical account of their lives. She includes fascinating research such as:
• Archeological findings • Legends • Poems • Mass and Offices of St. Hilda • Letter of St. Efleda
For God Alone provides invaluable and inspirational research for anyone interested in sainthood, monastic life, or English history.
