About the Author

Ann Laforest, O.C.D., was led to the Carmel at the age of 20 by Saint Thérèse’s Story of a Soul, where the lifestyle closely resembled Thérèse’s own Carmel in Lisieux before the reforms of Vatican II. In 1980 she took a leave of absence to study Scripture, Theology and Psychology. She has a Master’s of Sacred Theology from Boston University, and lives at the Carmel of the Incarnation, in Beacon, New York.
