A saint who would not let the Lord God alone, she really did lay siege to heaven-and changed the face of her world. This novel, which is also a vivid biography, brings Catherine of Siena to life in a remarkable way. She lives on every page. ▲. Title: Lay Siege to Heaven: A Novel of Saint Catherine of Siena By: Louis de Wohl Format: Paperback Vendor: Ignatius Press Publication Date: 1991. Weight: 1 pound 1 ounce ISBN: 0898703816 ISBN-13: 9780898703818 Stock No: WW8703816.

Continuing his popular series of novels about saints of the Church, de Wohl devotes his considerable talents to an interpretation of one of the most unusual women of all time, St. Catherine of Siena. The daughter of a prosperous dyer in 14th-century Siena, Catherine devoted her life to Christ, persuaded the Pope to move from Avignon to Rome, subdued the warring City-States of Italy, and changed the face of her world.
  • I read another book about St Catherine of Siena years ago which was very good but I especially love to read saint books by Louis de Whol because they come to life in his capable hands. I was thrilled to find Lay Siege to Heaven in Kindle and gobbled it up. De Whol's books are never dry nor boring. They are always engaging and give us glimpses into the lives of our beloved saints. Catherine is a favorite of mine. I'm sure after reading de whole's version of her life, she will become a favorite of yours and you will rush to read every one of his books. Happy reading!

  • I have read many stories and biographies of St. Catherine of Siena. This is her life story told in a way that awakens the imagination to what it would be like to live in the Middle Ages. It reminds one if the great fight between good and evil, and the benefit of seeking all that is good, true, just and beautiful. The Church is worth fighting for!

  • This is a beautiful story written in fiction form about the life of St. Catherine! I enjoyed the book so much that I wanted more about her. I ordered from Amazon The Life of St. Catherine as recorded by her Spiritual Director. The story "Lay Siege to Heaven" written in fiction brings you right into her life as she grew up and has visits from Our Lord as a young child. Very interesting and informative.

  • Louis de Wohl does such a wonderful job of weaving relavent historical events with known facts of St. Catherine's life. Anyone who has an interest in the life of St. Catherine will find this to be a "page turner". All of Mr. de Wohl's stories of the Saints are excellent - I have read most if that all.

  • I've been a member of a parish named in honor of St. Catherine of Siena and I knew absolutely nothing about her. Before reading something "non-fiction", I wanted to let Louis de Wohl introduce me to her. I've read one other book of his, "The Spear", and through that experience I was able to visualize the Gospels more fully. After reading this book I'll look at some biographies on St. Catherine of Siena, and I expect the narrative image provided by Louis de Wohl will enable me to better appreciate the bios and the life of this great saint.

  • I didn't know if I was going to like this form of writing, a novel for a life of a Saint. But I did, it seemed to make it more life like. Such a courageous woman and we're supposed to imitate the saints! Beautiful story. It doesn't seem like there are people like this anymore but I'm sure there are. I would recommend the reading of this book, especially by women.

  • Read one of his books and ordered all the rest!

  • wonderful account of an amazing woman.
