Dorothy Day was an American journalist, social activist, generous humanitarian, and devout Catholic convert. This visually rich book illustrated by beloved artist Br. Mickey McGrath depicts the fascinating journey of her conversion to the Lord through nature and the beauty around her. Brother Mickey's paintings and sketches are illuminated by a series historical and inspiring stories exploring Dorothy’s life's work of helping those in need. Dorothy's own inspiration, St. Francis de Sales, is also celebrated along the way with elements of his own spiritual wisdom about life, humility, patience, and other "little" virtues. An inspiring new book revealing past generations of faith and leading the next generation toward a hopeful and optimistic future.
"Christ stands on a fire escape on the 3rd floor of a tenement building. Dorothy perches on a metal garbage can and types away. Around both of them life swirls: children play, old men hobble, babies suckle, laundry hangs, hens peck, hawkers sell, people talk. Brother Mickey portrays in life-brilliant color and prayer-soaked words an image of Gospel incarnated in Dorothy Day. He takes us on a journey from Dorothy’s morning prayer of faith searching youth, through the magnificat of her high noon actions for justice, into the contemplative evening of her communion with beauty. Along the way we meet the poets and prophets, the saints and scholars of all times who accompanied her. All is beauty; all is grace." — Sr. Patricia McCarthy, CND

"A feast for the eye and ear, Saved by Beauty is 100 compact pages of exquisitely sensitive narrative intensely underscored by... the literary quotations, visionary material, and the fabulous colorful modern paintings of possible scenes from the life of Dorothy Day. This inspirational illustrated biography is an absolutely first class study of the fascinating spiritual evolution of a devoted modern mystic, committed to abiding faith in the trasnformational power of the love of God." — Lorraine's Bookshelf, Nancy Lorraine, Senior Reviewer, The Midwest Book Review.
