I was given this hardback book for Christmas and I devoured it! It is a republishing of the original work from the 1970s and is a well-researched and honest account of the life and work of Gladys Aylward. ... With the world's eyes turned on China due to the outbreak of coronavirus, this is a well-timed reminder of what God has been doing through the history of that country. The book reads like a novel and is a 'warts and all' approach to this heroine of the faith. The book is a challenge, showing what God can do through someone totally dedicated to him. Gladys wouldn't get through the selection process of many, if any, modern missionary societies, being just a poorly educated house servant with nothing to commend her except a sense of call and a strong faith in what God could do. Read it to challenge your own faith.

A down-to-earth London girl, without many prospects, commits to Christ as an eighteen year old and the Lord uses her beyond what anyone could have imagined.

Gladys Aylward, a little but determined woman, became a mighty gospel force amongst her beloved Chinese people as she forsook everything, even her own safety, for the sake of their physical and eternal wellbeing.

Her Christ-led adventure takes her on a perilous solitary journey from London to China, and sees her escorting hundreds of children through a war zone - even stopping a riot in a Chinese prison! Throughout it all, she would rather die with ‘her people’ than desert them. Her gospel living challenges us today, as she demonstrates a simple, transparent and challenging faith in the God whom she whole-heartedly trusted.
