This short introduction to the spirituality of the leaders of the Carmelite Reform is a lively and approachable way into their thought and writings. Mother Mary Clare has set them in the context of their historical background in sixteenth-century Spain, while reminding us that their teaching and humanity speak across the centuries. The example of their love of God continues to attract us and to inspire us to persevere in prayer.
