The Collected Letters of St. Teresa of Avila Vol. 1 by St. Teresa of Avila (Author) Kieran Kavanaugh (Author Translator)
St. Teresa of Avila wrote candidly in two books the story of both her life and her work as foundress: The Life and The Foundations. Despite her openness in them, she wrote with the knowledge they would be read by her censors. Her letters, then, exhibit even more striking candor, offering many details that were not meant for the public. In these letters we walk with Teresa year by year, day by day ----even hour by hour sometimes.
