St. Therese and the Roses
From the popular Vision Book Series of saint biographies by Ignatius Press. Growing up in Lisieux, France, was occasionally painful but usually delightful for Therese Martin (the Little Flower) and her four sisters. For practical Marie, studious Pauline, hot-tempered Leonie, mischievous Celine, and beautiful, lovable Therese, growing up meant growing closer to God. The Little Flower found her pathway to holiness right in her own back yard. With their disagreements, secrets, visits to the convent, school adventures, and romances, these five girls are an enjoyable handful for their kindly, widowed father. But Therese, because she loves her family, discovers that one of her sisters might unwittingly prevent her dearest wish from coming true. Recommended for 4th grade students. 149 pp.
This title is also sold as part of the 4th Grade Vision Reader Set.
