Saint Therese of Lisieux, who lived in a Carmelite convent until her death at the age of 24, became -- through her posthumously published autobio. -- one of the world’s most influential religious figures, Here, Harrison reveals the hopes and fears of the young girl. Through a personal appeal to the pope, she entered a convent at the early age of 15. There, Therese embraced sacrifice and self-renunciation in a pursuit of the “nothingness” she felt would bring her closer to God. This sensitive 4-year-old whose mother’s death haunted her forever and contributed to the ascetic spirituality that strengthened her to accept even the deadly throes of tuberculosis. “A powerful story of a life lived with enormous passion and a searing, triumphant voyage of the spirit.”
