Books on Saints

I have read a few books on Saints but they all have been about Saints tucked away in a convent somewhere. I would like to read some books on Saints who were married. Can anyone recommend any?

Married Saints and Blesseds by Ferdinand Holbock (Ignatius Press)

“Secular Saints” by Joan Carroll Cruz, published by TAN books.

This thread may also be of interest. :slight_smile:

Not about married saints per se, but one of the best books on the saints is James Martin SJ’s My Life With the Saints. He makes the old standbys seem fresh and melds his own spiritual growth with the lives and relevence of the saints.
