Thérèse of Lisieux's "Little Way"

Thérèse is loved by many. And deservedly so. This unassuming nun has been made a Doctor of the Church because her words have brought comfort and wisdom to people of all ages everywhere. The simplified vocabulary and sentence structure of this book make her thoughts available with art and gracefulness. Thérèse of Lisieux's Little Way for Everyone will delight and nourish all who read it.
