Meet the Author

Ivy May Bolton was born in London on May 18, 1879. Her father, Reginald Pelham Bolton, was a historian, and she had a brother named Guy who later became a playwright. She lived in England until she was fourteen, when her family came to the United States, settling in New York. After her mother’s death she was sent to St. Gabriel's School, Peekskill, New York, from which she graduated in 1898. In 1911 she entered the Community of St. Mary (Episcopal), where she took the name Sister Mercedes, and made her life vows on August 18, 1914 at the Motherhouse in Peekskill. She taught English and History in nearly every school the order had and was well liked by her students. Somehow, amidst all this work, she wrote more than a dozen books between 1923 and 1952. She eventually retired to the Motherhouse in Peekskill and died there on May 9, 1961.
