Some years ago, Dr. Remi Amelunxen received a large, very old collection of works, dated 1856, on the lives of the Blessed Virgin and St. Joseph. It had been approved by Pope Pius IX who, based on it, had proclaimed St. Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church.
Dr. Amelunxen made a succinct summary of the work and added excerpts from The City of God, by Ven. Mary of Agreda, which had been approved and recommended by St. Pius X.
The result is The Great St. Joseph, where you will find what we know of the life of St. Joseph based on Scripture, great Saints and Doctors of the Church, and approved mystics.
In it, there are short chapters on his birth, presentation in the temple, and childhood. Then, follow his life with the Blessed Virgin: the espousal, the Incarnation, and the Nativity. Finally, read about events in the life of the Holy Family: the Presentation, the Flight into Egypt and return to Nazareth, the Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple. The last chapter looks at the suffering and death of St. Joseph and evidence of his assumption into Heaven.
Here you can read the Introduction by Dr. Amelunxen, where he lays out the plan and sources for The Great St. Joseph.
Sure to enlarge your knowledge of the great Saint and increase your devotion to him!
