In this fascinating biography—the first book on Guite to be published in English—we first see the close relationship between the two sisters, as well as some of the spiritual guidance which Elizabeth wrote for Guite from the Dijon Carmel. Following Elizabeth’s death, we witness Guite’s spiritual maturity, which was especially remarkable in the years when she left as a widow with nine children and facing extreme poverty, wartime deprivation and personal tragedy. Known in her parish and neighborhood for her outstanding charity and prayerfulness, she embraced the will of God in all that happened to her. As this book convincingly shows, Guite is a sure model for Christians in married and secular life, and an inspiring example of the transformative effects of the teachings of Elizabeth of the Trinity which are accessible to all, whether in the cloister or leading a busy life in the midst of the world.
