Overview

Sister Teresa by Barbara Mujica, Barbara Louise Mujica

Spoiled with beauty, riches, and adoration, a young girl from Ávila is sent to a convent by her parents to learn discipline, but discovers instead an unparelleled spiritual fervor -- one so powerful as to be condemned as sinful by some. She is Saint Teresa -- known as a mystic, reformer and founder of convents, and the author of numerous texts that introduced her radical religious ideas and practices to a society suffering through the repressive throes of the Spanish Inquisition. In Barbara Mujica�s masterful tale, her story -- her days of youthful romance, her sensual fits of spiritual rapture, secret heritage as a Jewish convert to Catholicism, cloak-and-dagger political dealings, struggles against sexual blackmail, and mysterious illness -- unfolds with a tumultuous urgency. Blending fact with fiction in vivid detail, painstakingly researched and beautifully rendered, Mujica�s tale conjures a brilliant picture of sisterhood, faith, the terror of religious persecution, the miracle of salvation, and one woman�s challenge to the power of strict orthodoxy, a challenge that consisted of a crime of passion -- her own personal relationship with God.
