From the Inside Flap
What do heather King and St. Thérèse of Lisieux have in common? Their lives of faith have been propelled by a revolutionary refusal to reduce their desire for happiness. Read this book and you will want to join them in their defense of the desires that make us human.
--Msgr. Lorenzo Albacete, author of God at the Ritz
"Heather King's sojourn with Saint Thérèse of Lisieux is a magnificent testimony not only to the Catholic conviction that the Saints endure in the life of the Church as real friends and lively companions, but also the uncanny ability of the "Little Flower" to graciously insinuate herself into the lives of the most unexpected people in the most surprising of circumstances.
One of the year's best reads in Catholic spirituality!"
--Father Robert Barron, Francis Cardinal George Professor of Faith and Culture
Founder and Director of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries "Heather King's incisive honesty draws me in, makes me feel her agonies and joys, and sends me away enriched. St. Thérèse must be very pleased." --Robert J. Edmonson, C.J., translator and editor, The Story of a Soul: A New Translation
From the Back Cover
"This book brings out the grit of sanctity, how it is a continuous, no-holds barred full-on contact engagement with reality. The episodes from St. Thérèse's life and Ms. King's reflections concerning her own path show how both the French Carmelite and her L.A.-based follower simplify their lives, not as an escape, but precisely in order to face without distraction the gargantuan challenge and adventure of love, surrender, living out, to the last drop their embrace of the Savior of the world." --Fr. Vincent T. Nagle, Holy Family Parish, Ramallah, West Bank, The Palestinian Territories "A moving book written with so much humility, confidence, and love. The true meaning of the Little Way shines through Heather King's grace-filled witness. The author's original prayers are some of the most beautiful I have ever read." --Fr. Peter John Cameron, O.P. editor-in-chief, Magnificat
"Heather King's walk with St. Thérèse is a profound account of turning one's life toward the light--
a journey to which, as she makes clear, we are all invited." --
Bethany Saltman, Zen essayist and poet
