Born in Villemont, near Bourges, France to poor but very devout parents. She was very religious and at the age of seven she took a vow of chastity. She was also blessed with the power to heal the sick and cured many.
Solange had the task of looking after the family sheep and she had an affinity for and power over animals. One day while tending her flock, Bernard a son of the Count of Poitiers, approached her and made advances at her. She resisted and this infuriated Bernard. Solange struggled when he tried to set her on his horse and was seriously injured when she fell off the horse. Possessed by a demonic fury, Bernard thrust his sword into her killing her on the spot.
Saint Solange is an inspiration to both young and old, standing firm to her beliefs, even to death.
