Search for the Hidden Garden
A Discovery with Saint Therese
Great for girls ages 7-10
Written by Sherry Weaver Smith, Illustrated by Rebecca Thornburgh
In Search for the Hidden Garden, readers will meet Saint Thérèse as a fifteen-year-old living in Lisieux in the months before entering her Carmelite convent. An imaginative historical novel, the story focuses less on Thérèse herself and more on the ways she helps the heroine, Charlotte Delacroix, grow in her love for Jesus.
This Saints series takes readers into the heart and mind of a young girl coming to grips with life and unraveling a mystery? But is the mystery the location of a hidden garden for children, or is it the mystery of how to create a life by doing "small, good things" for others and thereby for God?
