The story of Gladys Aylward is great, I just didn't enjoy the book so much. I had seen the movie in her life a few months ago and read how she couldn't stand the film's depiction, so I wanted to read the real story, as I soak in missionary books always. At first I did not really like the woman, but you can see how she grew in the Lord over time. Many lives were changed and spared because of Miss Aylward's bravery and love for others. It was nice to learn about.
