Ostracized by the Chinese, and later wounded by the Japanese, she led 100children to safety through the mountains. This is a compelling story of bravery and faith, ofGod's strength in human weakness. Her story has become immortalized through the filmThe Inn of the Sixth Happiness, starring Ingrid Bergman. Retold here, this new biographyincorporates original material which digs beneath the surface into some of thecontroversies that surrounded her life and work.END

I just finished this amazing book. Carol Purves holds you completely captive in this book. I read it in less than a day. She really writes a compelling and heartwrenching story about Gladys-how faithful and totally dependent she was on God. Her whole of life was dedicated to serving her Lord. This book is really worth reading to your children as well as for yourself.
