Item Description...
A tale inspired by the life of the Spanish saint describes how a wealthy girl from Avila is sent to a convent by her parents and discovers within herself a spiritual fervor that is alternately criticized and admired by a society that is suffering through the Spanish Inquisition.

Publishers Description
Spoiled with beauty, riches, and adoration, a young girl from Avila is sent to a convent by her father to avoid the scandal caused by her budding relationship with a local bachelor, but discovers instead an unparalleled spiritual fervor - one so powerful as to be condemned as sinful by some. She is Teresa de Ahumada, the woman who will become Saint Teresa - known as a visionary, reformer, and founder of convents, she was the author of numerous texts that introduced her revolutionary religious ideas and practices to a society suffering through the madness of the Spanish Inquisition. In Barbara Mujica's tale, her story - her days of youthful romance, sensual fits of spiritual rapture, family's secret heritage as Jewish converts to Catholicism, cloak-and-dagger political dealings, struggles against sexual blackmail, and mysterious illness - unfolds with a tumultuous urgency. Blending fact with fiction, Mujica's tale conjures a picture of sisterhood, faith, the terror of religious persecution, the miracle of salvation, and one woman's challenge to the power of strict orthodoxy, a challenge that consisted of a crime of passion - her own personal relationship with God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent book!  Aug 9, 2008
My favorite book by this author! Very well researched and beautifully written. Reader should note that the book is historical fiction.
Disappointment  Dec 25, 2007
I found this book to be an awkward combination of hagiography and bodice-ripper. I read all the way to the end, but I'm not sure I'm glad I did. If you want to read about St. Teresa of Avila, this might not be your first choice!
The saint was a real person  Jul 9, 2007
I just finished Sister Teresa and can't wait to find out more about Saint Teresa. Dr. Mujica takes historical information and combines people from history with created characters that enables the reader to really understand and feel what it was like to be in the time period of the book. I would recommend this book to anyone whether they are Catholic or not.
Nuns have Fun  Apr 4, 2007
As a member of the Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites,
I am happy that our founding saint is the subject of a new book.
Although some of the scatalogical language made me wince,
on the whole I enjoyed the tale.
Teresa herself was an excellent writer,
and who are interested may want to read
her Interior Castle and The Way of Perfection.
Both are replete with more amusing anecdotes
about her life and times,
and may enrich your inner life as well.
