Saint Odelia: Through Darkness and Into the Light, by Jakob StreitWaldorf Publications
WC: Grade 2 / Children's Lit
The story of Saint Odelia, patron saint of the Alsace region in France, is one of the most beautiful legends known from the middle ages. It is about the destiny of a child, born blind and turned out by her father, who gains her sight through a miracle at her baptism. The young girl goes her way, unerringly, against all odds, and establishes the convent later named for her: Odilienberg.
