On 21 August 1879, the small village of Knock in County Mayo received three unexpected visitors. By the wall of the church, a beautiful apparition of Mary, Joseph and St John the Evangelist captivated a group of local people, changing their lives and the life of this country village forever.
Accompanied by charming illustrations from Barbara Croatto, children’s author Eleanor Gormally brings the familiar story of the apparition at Knock to life. This book is ideal for children aged six to eleven.
Eleanor Gormally lives in County Limerick with her husband and daughter. She is also the author of The Little Flower Bulb, The Little One Asks and Bernadette and the Lady of Lourdes, all published by Veritas.
The Italian-born, Dublin-based illustrator Barbara Croatto has worked as a designer for more than twenty years. She has illustrated a number of Veritas titles, including The Story of St Brigid and Three Visitors: The Story of Knock.
