Mother Teresa is one of the most celebrated figures from the last millennium. For more than 50 years, she did things that announced her to the entire world. A polite and humble figure, loved and criticized in equal measures, this audiobook celebrates the life of a little nun from Albania who taught the whole world a lesson. The audiobook is divided into four chapters, each dealing with a tenet that concerns the life of Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
For 15-year-old Ricki, there's only one thing to know about her bounty hunter dad: he's never been there for her. But when her mother leaves, Dad suddenly appears and pulls her along on the road, hunting for criminals who've skipped bail. Ricki is sure she wants nothing to do with her father. She's much more interested in Ian Burnham, the 17-year-old skip Dad's chasing. Ian is confident and powerful and into her, everything that Ricki's family isn't. But Dad seems to think he can tell her what to do after all these years - and he says, stay away from Ian.

Seminary school was a failure, and his cousin, Klee, had rejected his romantic advances.
