  • This presentation of the flowers of Therese of Lisieux, patron saint of florists and gardeners, makes her more accessible as a religious thinker and creative artist. From childhood onwards, she wrote and talked about herself, other people, and God in terms of flowers, actual and symbolic. This study, based on research in the places where she lived and worked, is the first account of Thereses life, reading, writings and reception from this viewpoint. Felicity Leng shows how Therese used flowers to shape her unique vision of herself, and her relationship with God, the Church and the natural world. The book represents Therese in terms of her background and writings as an unfolding flower in the garden of Carmel, of this world and of eternity, and as people have related to her since her death. It is intended both for those well-acquainted with her life and works, and for those who know almost nothing about her. The book is illustrated by the author.
