Monaghan: A Life
Tan Books, 2016
Hardcover, 280 pages $27.95
Pearce, the preeminent Catholic biographer of our time, traces Monaghan’s life from his humble beginnings. He tells Monaghan’s story in such a fashion that despite missteps along the way, the subject is a man whose greatest desire is to be among the saints in heaven at the end of his earthly pilgrimage.
Monaghan’s life is an inspiring story of success in the face of what, for many, may have been insurmountable odds. Yet he was determined to succeed when it would have been easy to quit, and he rediscovered a childhood faith that changed his life and the lives of many others.
