First edition of Eileen Egan's intimate portrait of Mother Teresa. In the original dust jacket with David Tamura's portrait. Eileen Egan was perhaps more well-known as a founder of PAX Christi USA and as the person who originated the term "seamless garment." But she was also a longtime friend of Mother Teresa and in the perfect position to write this biography. Egan won the Pacem in Terris Peace and Freedom Award in 1989. With photo inserts. Includes several Appendices, including A Matter of Conscience, an open letter to the Indian government regarding a 1978 Freedom of Religion Bill.
