The book was published timed with the release of the movie "Fatima" (2020). The work is in Q&A format and makes easy reading. It is not a comprehensive work on the Fatima apparitions and message, but a guide for those who have little knowledge of what happened in 1913. The book makes a very good teaser for those who wish to find out more about the Fatima apparitions. The author also inserts matters related to the Fatima message, for example, the interpretation of the third message of Our Lady, St. John Paul II's assassination attempt. The work gives an objective and faith-filled perspective of the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary, without falling into an exaggerated interpretation of Our Lady's messages that some other works have delved into.
