John Clarke, O.C.D. translation of Therese's original "Histoire d'une ame."
Story of a Soul, the humble, simple and joyful acknowledgment of God's mercy and love in St. Therese's own uncomplicated life, captured the interest and attention of its readers from the first time it appeared in print. In fact, we can say that St. Therese's book, like the simple and direct message of the Gospels, can be the source of a deep and religious inspiration for those who read it.
Story of a Soul has been translated into 35 other languages and may be looked on, then, as St. Therese's legacy to the world, her personal message to "little ones." Written by John Clarke, O.C.D., this book was named one of the top 10 spiritual books of the 20th century.
