Formerly Sister Donata of Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity, Johnson tells her provocative, emotionally charged story about how a Texas teen became a religious sister. She recounts her struggles with sexuality, the order’s political pettiness, and her complicated relationship with Mother Teresa, who habitually referred to herself in the third person. As narrator, Johnson captures the spirit of intense devotion that drove her to a life of selfless love and service to the poor and delivers age-appropriate voices that reflect the 27 years covered in her story. Particularly strong are her accounts of the harsh realities of “The Rule” the sisters lived by, which demanded that they live like the poor they served. Personal names and touching between members weren’t allowed while self-flagellation and severe forms of physical penance were encouraged.
