Rave Reviews for The Inspiring History of a Special Relationship
"The Inspiring History of a Special Relationship by Nancy Carver is the inspiring story of the rebirth of St. Mary's in the United States and fully illustrates what Churchill meant when he said that the two countries have a special relationship that enables them to accomplish anything when they work together to accomplish a particular purpose."

-A. Greenspan, Midwest Book Review
