Mother Teresa is a modern-day icon - the paragon of human goodness, empathy and charity. This fully illustrated biography tells the story of her life, from a determined young nun who went out onto the streets of Calcutta to care for the diseased and dying to becoming the founder of the Missionaries of Charity, who now work in over 120 countries. Greg Watts paints a deeply human portrait of this inspiring and controversial woman, including the spiritual darkness she suffered from at various stages in her life.
