Nun denies existence of god.

Mother Teresa's selfless care of the sick and dying is what attracted Colette Livermore to follow in her footsteps. Joining the Missionaries of Charity at 18, Colette worked among the destitute in Kolkata, Papua New Guinea and Manila. She eventually left the order, dissillusioned and with a crisis of faith, and later became a doctor. Colette's memoir - the first ever written about life as a nun in Mother Teresa's order - is a journey from certainty to doubt, and she recounts the highs and lows of her journey to Rachael Kohn.
