Without formal education or a missionary organization to back her, Gladys (1902-1970) raised her own finances for the overland trip that would bring her to the country and people that God had etched so deeply on her heart...China! What follows is an amazing adventure of faith and determination. Gladys Aylward, a housemaid from England, dared to trust God in the face of dire and seemingly hopeless circumstances. Her life is one of the truly great missionary stories of our era.

I probably would have enjoyed this book more had I not read God's Smuggler immediately prior. I was expecting to hear the same kind of incredible testimony. This book is very good, yes!! I guess what I missed was hearing more about the prayers and seeing so clearly how God answered them. My review will only make sense if you read God's Smuggler... God clearly used Gladys! The book covers what happened but, due to the fact that the Gladys was not involved in the writing, I believe the behind-the-scenes deep relationship with Christ doesn't come through. Her life testimony is incredible! I just wish I could have known more about her prayer life. I hope this makes sense! Good book and thankful for the author for gathering as much information as possible. ... But definitely read God's Smuggler!
Great story of courage and bravery! An unstoppable spirit who took each step thinking of the needs of others. She triumphed through situations that many would shrink from... I wish I could of had tea with her myself!
The book itself is wonderful. There is a squeeking noise in the background throuthout the audio. It makes me not want to purchase any more from this narrator.
All of them were excellent. .
