This is another favorite missionary book. After writing her husband's biography, Goforth of China, Rosalind was asked to share some things from her own perceptive. It's a fine line between "keeping it real" and complaining, but Rosalind did a wonderful job letting us in on the particular joys and trials of being a missionary wife. But it is not a book just for missionary wives: the lessons learned can apply to any reader.
