Mother Teresa's name and work is internationally recognised. Over the course of her life she has received numerous awards for her humanitarian work, including the 1962 Padma Shri Award, the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, and the highest US civilian award - the Medal of Freedom.
Although her good deeds were indisputable, Mother Teresa's life was not without controversy. Her strong views against abortion and divorce and accusations of taking donations without questioning the sources have brought her criticism.
This book offers an exploration of the life, work, and legacy of this remarkable humanitarian who devoted her life to caring for the poorest of the poor.
