The sequel to Volume 1 contains all ofTherese's letters from the end of September, 1890, (during her novitiate) until her death in 1897, as well as many letters written to or about her. Here the mature Saint Therese shows the path of her growth as a religious and as a deep spiritual writer. The reader learns much about all of her correspondents, including her two missionary brothers, and gains familiarity with the development of her thought and message.
Fifty pages of complementary documents give us useful tools for studying the texts. The book includes 4 pages of facsimiles of Therese's letters, plus general and biblical indexes to both volumes.
