Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
One of a series that reexamines significant women's lives through a feminist lens, this biography gently challenges Therese's traditional image, suggesting that beneath her apparent submissiveness and fatal battle with tuberculosis lay a capacity for subtle but effective manipulation, the only outlet for power available to her as a woman and a Carmelite nun in the French Catholic world of the late 19th century. Despite her sophistication, Furlong clearly feels deep empathy for her subject and profound respect for Therese's contributions as spokeswoman for the ``Little Way'' to God. A captivating, accessible book. EC
