Heartwarming, real life story of Mary Jones, a young girl living in rural Wales in the late 1700s.
Mary was a popular girl who loved her parents, worked hard and was keen to learn but most of all she longed to have a bible of her own. But Mary knew that bibles were hard to come by and if she was fortunate enough to find one, it would be expensive so her dearest wish looked as if it would be an impossible dream!
But, after six years of saving hard she sets off to walk a round trip of 50 miles on her bare feet, in the hope that she will be able to buy a bible and bring it home.
Mary's dream comes true and her dedication to God and determination to get a copy of His word inspires the setting up of the 'British and Foreign Bible Society'.
An inspiring story of a young girl's commitment to God and love for His word.

I began reading it aloud to my 9 year old daughter, and I was moved to research this extraordinary tale. This is the classic account of events that led to the formation of the British and Foreign Bible Society (now Bible Society) in 1804. It paints a picture of the life and times of Mary Jones and her burning desire to read and know the Word of God. Her inspiring story has been reprinted many times, but was originally written by Mary E. Ropes in 1882. This is a humbling story that needs to be told. May there be a revival in our day to treasure the Ancient, Living Word of God.
