Editorial Reviews

This book tells of the power of prayer in their lives and of the many sacrifices of creature comforts they endured joyfully and without complaint. It details fascinating descriptions of ship travel to and from China and the Philippines. It could be read profitably by an adult, a student, or read aloud to an entire family. School-aged children would find it an appropriate selection for a book report, too.
Try another Trailblazer: No Mountain too High - Gladys Aylward by Myrna Grant. Gladys Aylward was another trailblazing Christian who changed the lives of the people around her. She was also a missionary in the Far East. Both Gladys and Isobel are good role models and heroines that girls can believe in.

    My 13 year old daughter read this book and loved it! She said, (quote)"I learned that God will come through with His promises, even if it takes what you think is a long time."(end quote)
