This electronic edition of the autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux ( Story of a Soul ) includes much, but not all, of the content of Soeur Therese of Lisieux, edited by Rev. T.N. Taylor. All the translated writings and sayings of St. Therese contained in that book are in this electronic edition, including the autobiography as well as Counsels and Reminiscences, letters, and selected poems. Also included are the preface by Cardinal Bourne, the prologue relating Therese's parentage and birth, and the epilogue describing her final illness and death. As one of the church's most beloved saints, Therese Martin, Carmelite of Lisieux has had an impact on the spiritual lives of thousands of believers. This French nun's short life (ended at age 24) was one of great faith and insight, and she was named patroness of France in 1947. Her autobiography, Story of a Soul, has been translated from the French to many languages and is a bestseller worldwide. -Abby Zwart, CCEL Staff Writer
