Every October 7, the Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. What many may not know is that this title was bestowed on the Blessed Mother after the Battle of Lepanto in 1571—the most epic sea battle in the history of Christendom.

Lepanto’s Lady is based on the real-life events of the Battle of Lepanto and introduces readers to Rosa, a young girl from Amalfi who must use her strength and cunning to stay clear of slave traders and ruffians as she travels alone in search of her father, who has been captured by enemies.

Can Rosa manage this treacherous journey with the help of newfound friends? How will she find and save her father? Lepanto’s Lady is a riveting tale that demonstrates the undeniable power of the Rosary.

Recommended for ages 10 and up.


Laurie Schmitt is the author of Champions of the Rosary. She is a veteran homeschooling mother of nine who lives with her family in rural Wisconsin.

“Here history mixes with legend, and adventure mixes with drama. Risk leads to honors, and adventures lead to vocations. Our Lady of Guadalupe and Joan of Arc make appearances, and the power of Our Lady of the Rosary is proved through the tale of two young people from a family like yours and mine. Recommended.”

Nancy Carpentier Brown, Author of The Father Brown Reader

    St. Nicholas left this book for my eleven-year-old, but my nine-year-old gobbled it up before he got to it. Both boys were totally engaged in the story and didn’t want to put it down. What a gift to have books with that power that are faithful to the Church!

    Laurie’s storytelling is sure to captivate the minds and hearts of readers young and old. Her writing makes you feel as if you are there among the characters, part of the battle, and brings the historical context and our Faith to life. The female main character, Rosa, and the battle scenes are sure to draw in boys and girls alike to this unique historical fiction. My children are still young, but I love that we have resources like this to help teach them the power of the rosary and the reality of our Catholic faith. I cannot wait for them to be old enough to read it themselves and I hope Laurie will release more books in this beautiful collection!
