Trusting God with St. Therese:

Trusting God with St. Therese By: Connie Rossini
Non-fiction: Religion, Biography, E-book

Fun fact: today is the 90th anniversary of the canonization of St. Therese of Lisieux.  Not that that had anything to do with this book, besides that it states when she was canonized in the timeline at the end of this book, but still she was canonized 90 years ago today.

This book deals with the life of St. Therese, the author's life, psychology, and St. Therese's Little Way.  It goes in a mostly chronological order for both St. Therese's and the author's life.  It also includes many Bible quotes, parts from the Catechism, other books to read on topics and questions and things to do at the end at each chapter.  It does a good job of showing how the saint's life can be used as a example for someone that on the surface lives a very different life.  It also deals a lot with how to heal from painful pasts and events.
