Book 37: Saint Therese of Lisieux: The Story of a Soul
The last book of the year....made it more than halfway to 50, so woooo!!! Thanks Candy, this is fun :)
Title: Saint Therese of Lisieux: The Story of a Soul
Author: St. Therese, translated by John Beevers
Copyright date: 1957
Publisher: Image Books
How many pages: 166
How long it took me to read: About 2 weeks
It was interesting to read about a saint's life through their own eyes, even though it wasn't so much an autobiography as it was a journal...well, when it came to the writing style, anyway. It was very humbling, and helped to change my view on things, and honestly...improved my life somewhat.
The only bad thing is that it's reeeeally hard for me to stay focused on non-fiction. That's my only problem.
The Verdict: Simple, but inspiring.
