Book Review of Mariette in Ecstasy

Mariette in Ecstasy

Helpful Score: 5

Mariette in Ecstasy is a stunning book about a French young woman's faith. It is hard to believe that a man wrote this poetic story. It is not the volume of words that makes this book so powerful, but the tremendously deep and emotional expression of Mariette's experiences as a cloistered novice. Beautifully written. Deeply moving.
