Thérèse of Lisieux: A Biography - Book By Patricia O'Connor
A carefully researched biography, the life, times and spirituality of St Thérèse are brought to vivid life. She is called 'the Little Flower', but she is no shrinking violet. Denied entry to the Carmelite convent because of her youth, she argued her cause all the way to Pope Leo XIII. Finally admitted to Carmel in 1888 at the age of 15, she lived only nine more years, but in those nine years she achieved a state of holiness few have attained.
