Mother Teresa; Saint of the Poorby Nina Morgan, Richard Wood
From a devout Catholic childhood in Macedonia (which makes her Albanian), to her dedication to the poor of India, here is the story of Mother Teresa's life. When she was 19 she joined the Loreto order and traveled to Ireland, where she learned English. She first journeyed to India in 1929, but it wasn't until 1950 that, having become an Indian citizen, she established the Missionaries of Charity. From then until her death in 1997. Mother Teresa ministered to the poor, along the way capturing the attention of leading world figures (including Princess Diana) and garnering a Nobel Prize for Peace in 1979, and endearing her work and her personality to millions the world over.
