    Hardcover ´ Sister Teresa ePUB µ sister epub, teresa pdf, Sister Teresa PDFBased on the book's preface I'm still a touch confused as to how much of the book is real and how much is made up At any rate this turned out to be a far interesting read than I would've expected Saint Teresa comes across as human canny arrogant and goodMy only real problem with this book is that it was poorly typeset or proofread maybe?

    Hardcover ´ Sister Teresa ePUB µ sister epub, teresa pdf, Sister Teresa PDFI wish I could say that I liked Sister Teresa a novel by Barbara Mujica recounting the life of St Teresa of Ávila I even read it twice to convince myself that there was something to the book that I just hadn't found But alas Granted Mujica's Teresa is an interesting multi faceted character She's not a sweet saint she manipulative ruthless loving and intellectual a woman to be respected even over a backdrop of the Spanish Inquisition It's not the characterization that gets me it's the writing styleI know I harp on writing style a lot in these reviews but it truly affects my ability to fully enjoy a book I also think that it's a bit of a cop out to use a a fictional modern day translator who only appears one time in the whole novel just to be able to be rid of some of
