Reviews

"I am stounded by... the beautiful expression of who Lilias was and what her legacy teaches us. I couldn't put [the book] down, as they say, and I read it--devoured it--carefully, gladly, and with great blessing... a "drop everything book"!--Elisabeth Elliot, author and speaker "I am astounded by ... the beautiful expression of who Lilias was and what her legacy teaches us.

Her book is [filled] with quotes that will challenge the reader's faith and obedience to God ... A fresh look at another one of England's distinguished missionary pioneers."--Jim Reapsome, review for "Evangelical Missions Quarterly"
