Love: The Saint and the Seeker by Christina Stevens

Book Synopsis(via Goodreads):

“God will write through you.” Those were almost the last private words Mother Teresa spoke to acclaimed filmmaker Christina Stevens ~ urging her to share her story with the world. A similar calling had come months earlier, when Mother Teresa appeared to Christina in a dream, summoning her to India to film her message to the world. Without hesitation, she gathered a film crew and boarded a plane for Calcutta.
Little did she know that when destiny beckons and a Saint-to-be takes your hand, startling events and profound discoveries are around every corner. Told through the lens of Christina’s colorful youth, her mind-expanding adventure may prod you to recognize your own life’s calling, and that will lead you to the most powerful and transformative place in the cosmos ~ love.

***Many thanks to Net Galley and Hay House Publishing for the advanced reader's copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ***

This insomniac's opinion: 

I really wanted to like this book. I have had a life long fascination with Mother Theresa and her life and work. However, this novel was much more about the author and her own life than Mother Theresa. The book was meandering and went from topic to topic and place to place and left the reader feeling a bit lost and discombobulated. 

I highly appreciate what seemed to be the author's purpose with this book and was certainly inspired by many of the author's experiences but was left feeling a sense of disappointment during reading. 

Worth staying up all night to read?

Unfortunately, no.
