Lovelorn? Don't despair. Just in time for Valentine's Day comes this delightfully whimsical guide to finding love through the aid of the saints, filled with over fifty rituals to remedy a wide range of romantic woes.

The saints have long been asked to intervene on behalf of us mortals. But did you know that there is a special group of saints who specialize in matters of the heart? For the first time, Dear Saint Anne, Send Me a Man offers up a guide to the most potent of these otherworldly matchmakers. From saints who can predict your romantic future to saints who can help you attract and keep a mate, there's a heavenly Dear Abby in here for you:

* Going on a blind date? Meet St. Raphael, your personal dating bodyguard.
* Seeking the crème de la crème of husbands? St. Catherine is a speeding bullet.
* In love with the wrong, or forbidden, person? St. Dwynwen will help, no questions asked.
* Found the right one and want to make it last? St. Monica is your gal.
* Plus: a cake recipe that can bring you visions of true for ugly ducklings, the newly single, and the broken-hearted...a pancake ritual that will make you irresistible...special days for love...and more...

Witty and informative, irresistibly packaged with original four-color illustrations throughout, Dear Saint Anne, Send Me a Man is the perfect gift for Valentine's Day and all the year round.
