Heaven Help Us

Your days of worry and frustration are over. Whoever you are, whatever you do, there's a patron saint who wants to help you--specifically you--with your troubles. This Saint Will Change Your Life features 300 patron saints for every person and situation imaginable.

- There are patron saints for travelers, vegetarians, and women in labor.
- For gamblers, lawyers, and parents with disappointing children.
- For families stressed by houseguests.
- For victims of toothaches, appendicitis, and sore throats.
- For beekeepers, booksellers, sailors, schoolgirls, and even (we kid you not) vampire hunters

This Saint Will Change Your Life describes the real-life histories of an amazing variety of holy figures from the Christian faith and reveals how each became associated with particular beneficiaries. Also included are reproductions of 300 full-color holy cards depicting these heavenly helpers in all their glory.
