Notes:
The spread of devotion to St. Therese of Lisieux is one of the impressive religious manifestations of our time. During her few years on earth this young French Carmelite was scarcely to be distinguished from many another devoted nun, but her death brought an almost immediate awareness of her unique gifts.
Thérèse Martin, largely unknown when she died in a Carmelite convent in 1897 aged 24, became one of the world's most influential religious figures. Now, acclaimed novelist and memoirist Kathryn Harrison reveals the moving truth behind the young girl who would become a religious icon.

I found this a compulsive read. Difficult to understand the emphasis on suffering in Therese's psychological makeup, but something magnetic about her personality kept me reading through the story of her (outwardly) very dull, uneventful life. An eye opener.
