Olivia's Gift - Nancy Belanger
By Nancy Belanger
Olivia Thomas was the new girl in school when she felt St. Therese of Lisieux enter her life in a powerful way. Now, two years later, her relationship with the Little Flower has blossomed into a beautiful friendship as she prepares to follow the Little Way into the seventh grade.
School is out for the year and it is time for a fun beach adventure with family and friends. However, Olivia's summer vacation turns out to be anything but ordinary! She discovers that sometimes it can be difficult to be a good Catholic when you're in middle school—and she finds that she needs God and St. Therese now more than ever. In this beautiful novel that celebrates modesty and the precious gift of life, Olivia learns that it takes blind faith every day—and that God is never far away, even on vacation.
