This sequel to volume 1 contains all of Thérèse's letters from the end of September 1890 (during her novitiate) until her death in 1897, as well as many letters written to or about her. Here the mature Saint Thérèse shows the path of her growth as a religious and as a deep spiritual writer. The reader learns much about all of her correspondents, including her two "missionary brothers," and gains familiarity with the development of her thought and message. Fifty pages of complementary documents give us useful tools for studying the texts.

"A rich mine of source material for those who wish to know her better."

- Bishop Patrick V. Ahern
Catholic New York

"A work of impressive scholarship and great beauty.… Indispensable."
