Product Description

  • Brings out the "Grit of Sanctity"
  • A direct imapct with reality!
  • This book is written with total humility and love
  • Honest to the core


If you have not read award-winning author Heather King before, her honesty may shock you. In this remarkable memoir, you will see how a convert with a checkered past spends a year reflecting upon Saint Thérèse of Lisieux - and discovers the radical faith, true love, and abundant spiritual life of a cloistered 19th-century French nun. The provocative title is inspired by a portion of T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets that says we all choose to live "consumed by either fire or fire."

"Refreshingly and brutally honest, the author describes a spiritual path full of poverty, loneliness, and suffering as she struggles to come to terms with her divorce, the death of loved ones, and unrequited love. She reminds the reader that "the scandal of Christ is that to have a relationship with him means to share in his suffering," and that to live a life of radical social consciousness in the 21st century is often an alienating endeavor. King offers a genuinely moving account of her quest to follow Therese's little way, become a "victim of love" and, indeed, to redefine what love means in the modern world. Recommended for anyone who is experiencing a "dark night of the soul" or interested in contemporary spirituality."-Publishers Weekly, October 2011
