A very interesting and candid account of an amazing woman, who showed great altruism during turbulent war times and went through a fascinating faith transformation.

I read your book “Memoirs of a Swedish War Nurse”. I enjoyed it. I enjoyed it as much for your questions (and follow-ups) as much as I did the responses. They were questions I wanted to be asked.  I was expecting a different type of book, something more religious. An expectation based on the book cover. I was pleasantly surprised to discover a woman who was compassionate, interesting, fun and just downright “cool” (smoking a cig while drinking tea on the train in her American uniform). The religious aspect of the book, although interesting, was secondary to me. It certainly gave an insight to Swedish culture, pre-war, during and post war.  Good writing and excellent questioning……..thank you.

This episode of Mother Teresa’s life is recounted in the fascinating interview-biography, Memoirs of a Swedish War Nurse: A Life of Adventure, A Journey to Spirituality, by US-born journalist Lois Lindstrom.
