Sister of Notre Dame [Julie du St. Esprit] (1868-1947), of the Congregation of Notre Dame de Namur. "The author has been no stranger to the anguish of the heart, which beats in mystic union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Crucified. And without being in the least autobiographical, she is attractively personal. Her sketches are meant to be objective, and not self-revealing; but their subjective lyric lines, all unconsciously drawn in, charm the reader with the experiences of a soul that has been 'nailed to the Cross with Christ.'" - review in America: A Catholic Review of the Week, vol. 20.
