This inspiring multi-media “E-book/app” is about a Kentucky orphan turned Catholic Sister who valiantly served her fellow man while caring for civil war soldiers. The haunting music, videos, pictures and plethora of trivia / facts embedded into the text for your interactive pleasure make this app a great way to be whisked away for an afternoon or a great addition to any educational curriculum. It’s a great (and at times chilling) read for lovers of history, valor, drama, women’s studies, and true-life stories; this creation is a valuable contribution to efforts in commemorating the many forgotten acts of bravery and selflessness shown time and time again by Sisters during times of peril. Despite how much they have contributed to the world, there are not enough stories in women’s history to reflect their true effect on those around them and those that come after them. Davis Studios has done a wonderful job in pulling together an impressive amount of information and presenting it in an engaging and entertaining documentary format . I look forward to more from them.
