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.

Reading biographies, especially autobiographies, of godly men and women is an excellent idea for believers, and this humble, imperfect missionary's wife certainly qualifies. Although her speech is dated, she is very sincere and full of faith in our God.

I love Rosalind's transparency as she shares her spiritual struggles as a missionary, wife and mother to a large family in a very hard field... China!
