Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in 1910, Mother Teresa grew up in a small war-torn town in Macedonia. The youngest of three children, Mother Teresa was called Gonxha, which means "flower bud," by her family because of her cheerful disposition. Mother Teresa's family were devoted Catholics who prayed every evening and went to church almost every day. By the time she was twelve years old, Mother Teresa knew she wanted to devote her life to helping the sick and poor. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Mother Teresa is considered one of the world's greatest humanitarians. She was the recipient of the United States Medal of Honor and the Nobel Peace Prize, and was beatified by Pope John Paul II. This fascinating biography details Mother Teresa's childhood and proves that one person can make a difference in the world with love and faith.
