I can't remember where I first heard of Claudia Mair Burney but recently her book was reviewed chapter by chapter (be sure to check out some of the other reviews) over the course of a few weeks on various blogs. I was hooked by the very first review of the blog tour. I knew I had to read this book so I added it to my Amazon shopping cart waiting until I had enough books to get free shipping. I continued to read the chapter reviews and was surprised when Claudia emailed me for my address to offer me a copy of her book for reading and reviewing.
Claudia starts out with a chapter long biography of St. Teresa of Avila; I was interested in learning more about Teresa's life as my family spent the night in Avila when we traveled through Spain while living in Germany. We went into a free museum but were unable to fully appreciate it since my high school Spanish was way too rusty. So I was entranced learning about this saint from the walled city of Avila.
