In Story of a Soul, St. Therese narrates her life and presents her Little Way to holiness.
This is truly one of the greatest spiritual books ever written. Our Lord speaks through this Saint with such force and meaning that it shakes the soul of the reader. When our Lord allows a person to read this book, they will be pulled into a profound and deep love of God that they did not know before. Our dear Saint writes with such ease and comfort and it can very easily relate to anyone. A highly recommended book for anyone who wants to know what it means to become a "child of God."

"For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy." - Saint Therese of Lisieux
