An Irish Saint, The Life Story of "Holy" Ann Preston by Helen Bingham and published by Classics Publishing.
This work was conceived before the death of the subject, and the greater portion of this story was taken down directly from the lips now silent. Many times before had she been approached for a sketch of her life, but only in the last two years did she feel that her Father would be glorified in its publication. Abler writers might have been selected for the purpose, but they would have lacked the long acquaintance which was essential to the right setting of this broken narrative.
While among the wider circle of readers into whose hands this sketch may fall there may be those who will be tempted to doubt some of the striking evidences of the power of God in this life, the thousands who knew her will have no question as to the veracity of any story that came forth from her lips.
The best testimony to the quality of that life was the fact that Ann never entered a home without leaving a benediction, and that in those where she stayed the longest will be found the greatest confidence in her saintliness.
