The most influential and popular saint of modern times, Therese Martin died virtually unknown outside her Carmelite convent in 1897, at the age of 24. After her death came the "storm of glory", the miracles and the acclaim that swept her statue into every church and her spiritual teaching into the mouths of popes. Therese's "little way" of prayer was a message for humanity of today, and the publication of her own writings made it known around the world. This biography brings the reader into close contact with the life and world of Therese, often in her own words, and serves as a suitable introduction to this "little" mystic who inspires millions of Christians.
