About the Book

9781504951838Not many teenagers would take interest in the eternal welfare of a convicted murderer. Even fewer would have interest in becoming a nun cut off from the outside world—while still a teenager. And still fewer would be able to discern a meaningful significance to suffering in general.

Thérèse Martin did all that and more. She embraced all the suffering she could handle both physically and spiritually, striving to offer all of it so that good could be brought of it until her death at the age of twenty-four.

This book attempts to narrate from multiple perspectives the true story of the hidden life of an unknown young woman who, after her death, would come to be known as the Greatest Saint of Modern Times.
