About the Author
Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
Mother Teresa stared out the window of the train as it made its way from the crowded city of Calcutta, India, to the mountain resort town of Darjeeling in September 1946.
The Indian countryside was very beautiful. But the train ride took many hours. With lots of twists and turns and zigzags to get up the mountain, the train moved slowly. That was okay, though. It gave Mother Teresa plenty of time to think.
Mother Teresa was traveling from St. Mary’s School for girls to her annual retreat in Darjeeling. A retreat is a good place to get away from the noise and distractions of everyday life, and to spend quiet time in prayer and reflection. It was the perfect time to think about God and to get energized for the coming school year.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

This book made me cry a little cause we complain alot about our lives but as u read this book u here about people who have serious injuries and suffer allot.
I recommend this book so u can learn about people who ( i dont know ) change the world. this is a really good book for kids so they can learn about history. I know there r some difficult words but u can use a dictionary or digital dictionary ( if u r using a kindle ) and u will learn new words too.
I hope u like this book as much as i do.
I also read these to him in the evenings and I really enjoy them as a 40 year old father. I have learned so much from them as well. Sometimes I read them before or after my son in order to have an educated discussion with him about the subject of the book. I really also get alot out of them as well.
