About the Author

Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897) was a French Carmelite nun. She is also known as "The Little Flower of Jesus." She felt an early call to religious life and overcoming various obstacles became a nun at 15. After nine years as a Carmelite religious, the last two spent in a night of faith, she died of tuberculosis at the age of 24. The impact of her posthumous publications, including her memoir The Story of a Soul, made her one of the best known Catholics of the 20th century.

I purchased the paperback of this edition of the book some time ago and have read it many times. However, as an avid reader of eBooks, I found that the one book I wish I had with me in case I ever needed to visit an old friend is "Story of a Soul." Now ICS Publications has *finally* come out with an electronic version of my favorite spiritual book!

Saint Thérèse of Lisieux was a French nun who had very little in the way of spiritual writings and died at the young age of 24. Her life was filled with tragedies, such as losing her mother at a very young age, and losing her father to dementia after entering the Carmelite convent. However, her relationship with Christ began in her earliest childhood years, and by the time of her death had matured into a simple, yet profound friendship.

Her way of humble confidence, and littleness, is something that can help anyone grow in their spirituality and help them foster a deep and intimate love for Christ. This book also gives many practical solutions to everyday problems and solutions, such as dealing with struggles in prayer and in her challenges dealing with loss and grief.

As other reviewers have stated, this is the best and authoritative translation of this book, based on the unedited copies of the original writings of Thérèse. There are HUGE differences between versions of "Story of a Soul" - the common Public Domain English translations and this version. The quotes below are one example of a huge difference between the translations. The story of the Rosary is completely left out of the Common Translation, as is the added section about the Blessed Mother.

I wanted to know why this book had such a lasting impact on humanity. It is simply because she understood the purpose of why she was created and why we have all been created and how the truths she believed applies to each one of us and to all humanity for all ages.

The writings of St. Therese of Lisieux are so wonderfully expressive of her immeasurable love for God, His son, and the Holy Spirit. It will strengthen your faith with every written line. She will touch your heart and soul with her youth and innocence and her profound understandings.
