Chasin' down a Hoodoo...

My fiance has become very interested in the lives of EO saints and has expressed a desire to read more about them.  I know about the Great Lives of the Saints, but was curious if there are any other compilations, maybe geared toward newbies?  Any ideas will be great appreciated.  Thanks a million!

Father Poulos has a series of 4 books on Orthodox Saints through Light and Life Publishing.

They are geared toward junior high school students and above, so they are quite easy to read.

Thank you, sister.  I have volume I, and although it reads really well I noticed there are no Irish or Romanian saints listed.  Perhaps Fr., being Greek, wished to speak primarily about Greek saints.  It's his book, so no qualms there, but I'm looking for something like his series but only more comprehensive.
