Kate Reading's narration of this work might be summed up as sympathetic and transparent. Reading's voice communicates sympathy with the complex story of this nineteenth-century saint, which is considerably illuminated by the author's contemporary analysis of her character. As Harrison switches from Therese's own writings to a host of other period sources, such as her sisters, Reading shifts tone smoothly. She does not attempt to voice regional accents or different personalities. As a result, this narration allows one to focus on the complex subject that is Saint Therese. G.T.B.
