“If the little flower could talk, it seems to me it would say what God has done for it quite simply and without concealment . . . This flower, in telling her story, is happy to make known all the gifts Jesus has given her.”
—St. Therese of Lisieux
The beautiful style of St. Therese’s writing will capture your heart, but it will be the power and efficacy of her lessons that will keep you returning day after day.
Only written under holy obedience by the command of her superior, St. Therese’s autobiography conveys the secrets of her great holiness, which she achieved through her simple and ordinary life. It teaches her “Little Way of Spiritual Childhood,” which she called her “elevator to Heaven.” An important lesson for all Catholics, her “little way of love and confidence” is drawn directly from Scripture and has been approved by Pope Pius XI as a way to holiness for all.
Although she died at the age of 24, St. Therese was and is known for her great wisdom, and this magnum opus demonstrates the young Carmelite’s holiness and dependance on God.
St. Therese’s autobiography has become a classic of Catholic literature, and it has been translated into numerous languages. The Story of a Soul continues to grow in popularity and millions of copies are distributed worldwide.
No Catholic should be ignorant of the spiritual power of “little way” of St. Therese. This beautiful edition, which is printed in the beautiful style of all the TAN Books Catholic Classics Series, belongs on the shelf of every Catholic.

St. Therese is one of my favorite saints. Her ;Little Way; is inspiring, with her simplicity and devotion. I can understand how she is considered one of the doctors of the church.

Story of a Soul
I just love St Therese. Simple. Do everything out of love.
Loved this story. Very powerful
It's a classic, one everyone
It's a classic, one everyone should read
This book definitely starts off slow but drop little subliminal pieces of gold to start off, but once it picks up and St. Therese enters the Carmel the book officially gets going with how it really is spiritual food. Highly recommend
The Story of a Soul
From what I read to date, a lot of her writings remind me when I was a teenager growing up. Her love for Jesus is deep even when she was ill and having a hard time in the convent with her Superior. She didn;t consider these set back, and continued her love of Jesus. I am almost finished reading the Soul story. My best, Jim Wolan
