This book contains the testimony given in writing by Sister Lucia in four letters addressed to the Bishop of Leiria, on the events of Fatima in 1917. She relates what she remembers regarding what she and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta saw and experienced at that time. In this presentation of her memoirs, Lucia bequeaths to us information of highly historical value and shares also with us a spiritual experience that moved countless Christians throughout decades.

The text presented here, whose manuscript is kept in the Archives of the Diocese of Leiria-Fatima, was written between 1935 and 1941. More than a million copies of this volume, published in several different languages, have already been sold.

For anyone with an interest in Fatima, this is an essential read. It's not too long, and is helpfully separated into four different parts, but it's a very important book because it compiles letters written by Lucia to her bishop, the letters on which most information on Fatima is based. The first part is Lucia's initial, more brief account of the events, at which point she was still concerned about sharing the Secrets. However, the second account of events which follows is much more thorough and detailed, as at this point she was explicitly asked by the bishop to share everything. The final two parts are her memories of Jacinta and Francisco respectively, providing a real insight into what these young saints were like. The events surrounding Fatima are recounted so personally that the letters made me feel great sympathy for the little Seers who were so unfairly treated at the time; but they also inspired me to witness the great faith of the two Saints and Lucia herself.

This book is written by one of three children that saw our Blessed Mother Mary at Fatima who then became a nun. She is writing to her confessor, a priest in her own words and it is spellbinding and so truthful that I could not put it down. You know that what she says is truth and that she and those other blessed two children did actually see the Blessed Mother and that we, the world are not doing what the Blessed Mother asked of us those many years ago and what she has asked in many apparitions since to stop the spread of communism and then of war and of evil. It is an awakening to me and anyone who reads it and should be read by EVERYONE!!! It is easily written and readable.

Written with such simplicity and honesty, it was difficult for us to put the book down. We will now let our grown children experience it. We have known about the miracle of Fatima, but not all the detail from one who was present. The suffering endured by Jacinta, Francisco & Lucia from the treatment by adults and others who could not and would not believe was intense. Yet, these young children knew the truth so they accepted everything with dignity and maturity far beyond their years. They merely turned the other cheek, excepted the suffering foretold by the Blessed Mother and offered it up to the Heart of Jesus. For my wife and I who are believers, the story emphasized how little we understand what true suffering is and how far we still have to go in our walk with Christ.

It doesn't, on first sight, look like the most promising enterprise, but I can honestly say that this is the most touching, remarkable and life affirming book I have read this year. The children are so brave and independent and their experiences utterly captivating. Lucia's writing style is second to none: honest, straight-forward, humble, dry and wise. I couldn't recommend this book more highly.
