Summary (From the publisher):

The facts about Bernadette Soubirous are simple enough and in outline familiar. In Lourdes, some eighty years ago, the daughter od an impoverished family was visited by a vision of measureless kindness and indescribable beauty. She alone saw this Lady of the Grotto. There were powerful reasons of State and Church for discrediting a miracle, and ingenious and cruel attempts were made to prove the girl a fraud. Despite these efforts, and despite the fact that Bernadette herself made no claims except the single one that a beautiful woman had appeared to her, all France was swept by the conviction that the Mother of God had appeared on earth.
