Collection of Edifying Stories for Teens

Treasures: Visible and Invisible by CatholicTeenBooks authors

Treasures: Visible and Invisible is the third anthology by the authors at I am so honored to be part of this group and one of the contributing authors to this project. This is the first in our short story collection where the stories are connected.

Each fictional tale involves a relic of St. Patrick. What is a relic? Great question! A relic is something that once belonged to one of the recognized saints of the church. A first-class relic would be part of their body, usually a fragment of bone. A second-class relic is an item that belonged to a saint. Relics are not only interesting pieces of history, but throughout the ages, there have been many accounts of miracles surrounding these artifacts.

This book was such a joy to collaborate on. The eight authors who were able to participate all chose a time period to write from. The first story revolves around St. Patrick and a special fictional item. The item finds itself being passed through history in various ways, making an appearance in each story. The final story in the book is a futuristic, dystopian story. As with all our anthologies, the individual stories are all quite unique. Whether you enjoy Saint stories, historical fiction, mystery, romance, or adventure, you will be sure to find this edifying collection enjoyable and inspiring.
