Conclusion : a human passion. In 'Thérèse of Lisieux: God's Gentle Warrior', Thomas Nevin examined the popular saint in the broad context of her life with her family and as a Carmelite nun. Now he focuses on her writings, especially the last of her three 'autobiographical' manuscripts, known simply as 'C'.
