Publishers Description Many young men and women entertain idealistic thoughts of traveling to a poverty-stricken corner of the world to work with the poor. Susan Conroy, a Dartmouth junior, didn't just think about it -- she did it, journeying on her own to Calcutta to spend a summer volunteering with Mother Teresa and her Missionaries of Charity. In her moving, first-hand account of Mother Teresa and her work, Susan learned to find incredible peace and happiness in a city where she also found hell on earth. Her experience in Calcutta changed her life forever. Now you can share her account of life in Calcutta, her never-before seen photographs, and her remarkable profile of a modern saint -- the woman we soon will call St. Teresa of Calcutta.

Compelling, Inspring, and Genuine Jul 25, 2006
What moved me most about this novel is the genuine change of heart that transformed the author's view of the world. Mother Teresa was powerful in word but moreso in deed. First hand experience with Mother, at age 21, is not a claim many can make and the lasting influence of these experiences and the life lessons resulting are inspiring and real. This is an excellent novel which should have a genuine, positive influence on the hearts of any open minded reader.
this book is just more fluff for the brainwashed Apr 20, 2006
I read this book while waiting for a train one afternoon. It's absolute nonsense. If anyone is really interested in understanding who Mother Theresa was and what she really cared about, I suggest reading Christopher Hitchens, The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice.
Deep Insight into Mother Teresa Nov 12, 2005
I met Susan Conroy in Fall River MA where she came to present her book and experiences with Mother Teresa. The joyful and inspirational Susan amazed me with her patience as crowds surrounded her, looking for her to write a special message in their copy of her book. Susan reminded me of a recent guest on the Oprah Winfrey show, Maria Shriver, another joyful and inspirational woman. This book captures Susan's joy and inspiration, and the Mother Teresa experiences that have helped mold Susan's life. This book is a MUST for Mother Teresa fans.
A Summer With Mother Teresa Sep 21, 2005
The author spent a summer with Mother Teresa as a volunteer, in several aspects of the work in Calcutta. The volunteers had special daily time with Mother and learned not only what she did, but why she did it. Well written book; Miss Conroy has a knack for expressing deep feelings but without sentimentality. A great source for anyone who wishes to understand the greatest woman of our time.
Wonderful, personal account of Mother Teresa Apr 5, 2004
My spiritual book group chose this book for our book-of-the-month based on a member seeing the author interviewed. We all loved it; I think it's the most popular book we've read in six months. This is not by any means a complete biography, but a much more personal, and touching, portrait told through the eyes of a young woman. My whole family is now reading it based on my recommendation. People of all faiths will enjoy seeing the saint from a fresh perspective.
