The Buissonnets

The Buissonnets (1877-1888)

In November 1877, shortly after the death of Mrs. Martin, the family moved to a house just outside Lisieux. The house, which they rented, was just off the road to Pont l’Evêque, on a little road called “Chemin du Paradis” (“Paradise Way”). Thérèse Martin spent eleven years of her life here, until she joined the Carmelite Convent.
