"The strength of Joan Mueller's novel is its close adherence to the historical realities of the medieval world of Saint Francis. I could see and hear the everyday lives of Francis and his brothers, of Clare and her sisters, of ordinary citizens. Mueller's rendering of the lives of clergymen and knights puts a human face on the intricate workings of church and state in war and peace."
Murray Bodo, O.F.M.
"Francis: The Saint of Assisi begins like a tale of America's old West. Joan Mueller quickly draws the reader into the violence, greed, and lawlessness of twelfth-century Assisi. The reader meeting Francis and Clare for the first time will take pleasure in the story of a rich merchant and a beautiful noblewoman who choose religion instead of the ephemeral glitter of their time. The reader who is familiar with their stories will delight in the skillful way Mueller weaves primary scholarly sources into a modern tale."
Ingrid Peterson, O.S.F.
"This is a giant step forward in writing anew the life of St. Francis."
