In this fascinating biography of Charles de Foucauld, Little Sister Annie presents Charles as what he was: a man who was converted from a wayward lifestyle to a heroic follower of Jesus.

Blessed Charles Eugene de Foucauld (15 September 1858 - 1 December 1916) was a French Catholic religious and priest living among the Tuareg in the Sahara in Algeria. He was assassinated in 1916 outside the door of the fort he built for the protection of the Tuareg, and is considered by the Church to be a martyr. His inspiration and writings led to the founding of the Little Brothers of Jesus among other religious congregations. He was beatified on 13 November 2005 by Pope Benedict XVI. Charles de Foucauld was an officer of the French Army in North Africa where he first developed his strong feelings about the desert and solitude. On his subsequent return to France, and towards the end of October 1886, at the age of 28, he went through a conversion experience at the Church of Saint-Augustin in Paris.
