More Details


This great Spanish saint (1515-1582), mystic and Doctor of the Church spearheaded the reform of the Carmelite order, founding dozens of new convents in her own lifetime. Admired and disliked in equal measure, her strong will and incredible energy were supplemented by a great human compassion, frankness and sense of humour, and a constant search in prayer for her beloved Christ. Jennifer Moorcroft sets out this inspiring epic with ease, and introduces readers to Teresa’s Interior Castle and other writings.
