Art critic John Ruskin enthusiastically proclaimed her potential as one of the best artists of the nineteenth century, but Lilias Trotter's devotion to Christ compelled her to surrender her life of art, privilege, and leisure. Leaving the home of her wealthy parents for a humble dwelling in Algeria, Lilias defied sterotypes and taboos that should have deterred any European woman from ministering in a Muslim country. Yet she stayed for nearly forty years, befriending Algerian Muslims with her appreciation for literature and art and winning them to Christ through her life of love.

"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. 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 "Miriam Rockness [has done] a painstakingly superb job of researching original documents. 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"
