Keeper of the Light: Saint Macrina the Elder, Grandmother of Saints
By Bev Cooke

The road to sainthood takes a lifetime to travel. . . . Late in the fourth century, Christians are labeled enemies of the Roman Empire--hounded, arrested, tortured, and executed. Macrina and her husband Basil, once-wealthy Christians, flee with their small son to the mountainous forests south of the Black Sea. There, Macrina embarks on a seven-year journey of unexpected tests and trials that will take her through a harsh and hungry wilderness pilgrimage, only to plunge her into poverty and danger on the streets of Neocaesarea. So begins Macrina's adventure in faith, as she undertakes the process of becoming one of the most influential women in sacred history, the mother and grandmother of saints. Readers of all ages will be fascinated by the story of St. Macrina the Elder, who had a profound influence on her grandchildren, St. Basil the Great, St. Gregory of Nyssa, and St. Macrina the Younger. She is truly a great confessor of the Orthodox Christian faith. A chapter book, with black-and-white illustrations.

About the Author

Bev. started writing for publication in about 1983, and landed her first published piece, The Mommy Myth, a non fiction humorous essay about the things they don't tell you about motherhood, in 1990, after her marriage and the birth of her first child, a daughter. That was followed, a year or two later, by her next published piece, another humorous essay, The Second Kid, this time about having two kids, a year later. In 2000, she had David's Gargoyles accepted by the now defunct SPELLBOUND magazine, but that was it.
