It is the biography of Elisabetta Renzi published in 1989, on the occasion of her beatification.

Written by Angelo Montonati, journalist, the figure of Elisabetta acquires freshness and dynamism: while inserting it into the historical and geographical frame that saw her protagonist in life, the author draws us a woman for our times, always projected towards the future, who does not let herself be frightened by the Unexpected because, it is precisely the Unexpected that for her has  a beloved and known face: that of Christ.

Easy and pleasant to read, this book is always current, just  as the challenge of the Unexpected which ask for attentiveness in life and  during daily events is always current for everyone and, after all, reminds us of the importance of being attentive and lively people.

Reading it is a must.
