While the world mourned the passing of Diana, Princess of Wales, the news came of a further devastating loss for humanity. At 87 years old, Mother Teresa of Calcutta had died. Kathryn Spink who worked with her for thirteen years now tells the story of her remarkable life. In 1991 Mother Teresa gave Kathryn Spink permission to proceed with a full account of her life and work, but only on the condition that it was published after her death. Now for the first time in paperback, the full story of Mother Teresa's remarkable life can be told. Drawing on private conversations and letters embargoed until after her death, this authorized biography portrays a compassionate and saintly woman who was, at times, also flawed. About Mother Teresa — Mother Teresa founded her Missionaries of Charity in 1938 and opened her first Home in 1954. Others have been opened around the world, wherever their "work of love" has been needed. As a result Mother Teresa has become the best known Christian figure in the twentieth century.
