    Story
    "An amazing woman, child of God."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Therese


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    That she was truly an inspired, yet afflicted, soul who considered herself blessed with affliction.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    It's not entertaining. It's real life! It is not exciting. It's the reality of life on earth. There is no plot, no storyline, no climactic end. This is the real life autobiography of this young girl who tackled her life, her fears, and her disabilities with strength and courage that she realized (amazingly) were blessings that kept her from the temptations of her of her

    "Loved It!"

    This book and the life of St. Therese does a wonderful job of showing us how we can work for God in very small ways. All our efforts for good should be given to God.

    I also found it fascinating to learn what a Saint thinks and does to become a Saint. This book caught my attention right away because it started from St. Therese's very young years.

    This is a beautiful story of a young girl whose one wish is to serve Christ. It is a great devotional for any Christian.

    "GREAT FOR THE AVERAGE CATHOLIC"
    Any additional comments?

    The book of Therese is interesting, she was devouted as many saints, yet she was not the typical long suffering, public figure we envision. Her story illustrates the way God sees us, and how we can better see God in our life. It is a little syrupy, but that is what makes it digestable to the common person. She has obviously been choosen to tell a story, and it helps anyone growing in their faith to have an understanding of our being loved by God, and the gift of Jesus and Mary. It is nice to have a visual of the grace in our lives and how God provides.

    Story
    "One that you will go back and re-read"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux?

    As she is trying to do the little things for Jesus - I am realizing that am falling short. She does such little things and it is so much more than I can even begin to do.


    What about Sherry Kennedy Brownrigg’s performance did you like?

    She matched the sanguine personality of St. Therese.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Makes me want to try more.

    Story
    "Extraordinary Book on Love and Christian Mysticism"
    What made the experience of listening to The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux the most enjoyable?

    Therese's personality and approach to life are so incredible that every Christian should read this book, in addition to John Bunyan's "The Pilgrim's Progress". The two most important commandments for Christians are to love God, and to love your neighbor as yourself, and this book shows that in action.

    If you could sum up The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux in three words, what would they be?

    Honest Faithful Hopeful


    What other book might you compare The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux to and why?

    Psalms as St. Therese states almost every recollection as a thankful prayer to God.


    Have you listened to any of Sherry Kennedy Brownrigg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first time.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of it was inspiring in particular how I can hear the voice of the young woman come through and easily hear my young daughters and their concerns in the writing.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book to read / listen to and put down to come back to over a period of a month as it is inspirational and trying to read it too quickly robs one of the full experience.

    "The Lion of Lisieux"
    Any additional comments?

    A beautiful account of child-like simplicity and complete dedication to Christ. Less a 'little flower' and more a lion, Saint Therese demonstrates heroic love, heroic virtue and an heroic prayer life. All primarily from her small village and nun's cell. Without this book she probably would have been unknown to the world, but she was certainly known by Our Lord.
