It's a great book where you probably need to read every sentence several times to get the meaning behind it. My most favourite part of the story was the reformation of the Discalced Carmelites. One of the most valuable lessons that we can learn from her is her humility which allows herself to surrender and become completely immersed in divine love.4/5.
