Therese of Lisieux by by Jean Chalon


Sainte therese de lisieux

Sainte therese de lisieux 

Her life was simple. She devoted it solely to God.

A biographical work that is a bit over-lavish in its praise and yet perhaps it is a depiction of a reality. Can someone really be so good, so holy and so devoted? If it is true, then she deserves sainthood.

This book is well written and does make what seem to be a simple dreary life come alive for the reader. Maybe I am too cynical of such devotion.
