The Story of the Philadelphia Eleven
By Darlene O'Dell
“Darlene O'Dell is the biographer of the Philadelphia Eleven. The Story of the Philadelphia Eleven is beautifully written by a professional writer who is much beloved by those of us blessed to have been interviewed by her. Darlene is a scholar, a teacher, a gifted and disciplined author, and a gentle, courageous person, careful to tell the truth without flinching, also generous in telling about the human ambience around the facts of history with warmth, humor and grace, ever-sensitive and discreet, without disservice to revelation. I bless her daily for being true to the many facets of her vocation. May star showers of inspiration continue to bless you in your life and in your holy work, Darlene O'Dell!” ~Alla Renée Bozarth ~
