The basic book on the Life of St Teresa of the Andes is by Fr Michael Griffin OCD whose book "God The Joy of My Life" Jennifer references. However Jennifer has captured the fire that drove Juanita Fernandez / Sister Teresa to live to give Jesus her life and her love and her joy. St Teresa died a teenage saint (19 years and 9 months). She is real for the young people of today who - for those outside Chile - probably do not know of her. Many visit her shrine, including many young ones. These two books should be read together with the wonderful serial film on DVD called Saint Teresa of the Andes (in Spanish with English subtitles). It was shown as a serial in Chile over 6 weeks and is about 7.5 hours in length and is fascinating.

I am still reading about St Teresa of the Andes. I chose her several years ago as my patron saint. The book is about her life and her writings. It is well written and detailed. I saw a mini series about her life on EWTN, but the book is much more explicit and gives a lot more insight into my saint. Knowledge about Juanita who became St Theresa has increased for me. I am now keeping a spiritual diary about my journey with God.

Simply written and easy to read, this is a very basic introduction to the Saint's life. The author touches on main points in the development of the Saint's character and spirituality, without going into any deep analysis. Would make a good discussion book for Carmelite beginners.

Jennifer Moorcroft’s illuminating biography on the life of St. Teresa of the Andes is an uplifting work that will give a reader a very good detailed account of the life of Juana Enriqueta Josefina, a young, attractive, vibrant and affluent woman who loved all the elements that a good life can bring: the outdoors, athletics, music (particularly the piano), academics, her family and her friends. But, above all else, she loved Jesus Christ.

Even as a child, Juanita (as she is more commonly known), felt drawn to religion, feeling especially attracted to contemplative religious life. Endowed with bookish intelligence, humility and common sense, she was gifted from a very early age with many extraordinary mystical favors which she kept hidden, interior locutions being just one of those graces. And for all that she was graciously gifted with and while she appreciated all of it, it could not quell the void that was in her heart, an emptiness that was only satiated when she thought of being a spouse for Christ. However, she had to overcome herself in many respects, especially the temperamental aspects of her character. In one interior locution, she was told that she would become a Carmelite nun, devoting herself to prayer for priests as well as for a wounded world. Instilled with that message, she fought against the cultural and political tide of the time and never deviated from the divine path that was laid out for her. The only people within her family who were remotely aware of what was happening to her were her confessor, her sister and her mother.

While she knew that she would become a Carmelite, she was also aware-by way of the interior voice-that she was going to have a very short life, that she would die young, age 19 to be precise.

If the sample is any indication, the original manuscript did not receive proper editing by the publisher. Even in a few pages this is so apparent as to make for difficult reading. Descriptions are redundant, word choices are inappropriate, and the overall writing style is that of a high school book report. Perhaps the full text is better, but that seems unlikely. The sample convinced me not to purchase the book.
