What to say about this book. It is the story of Evelyn (Granny) Brand and her work with the hill people of India. Granny Brand and her husband started a great work of bringing Christ to the lost.

Granny Brand: Her Story by Dorothy Clarke Wilson (1996)
I enjoy reading true stories especially about missionaries and their lives. This book gave the truth - she wasn't perfect. But Evelyn was dedicated to the work of the Lord and her humility was a testimony to me. An amazing story of how Evelyn Brand, first with her husband, then alone, ministered to the people of India.

Well worth the read - however, it can be very convicting.
Missionary biographies have been one of my favorite categories of reading since I was a little girl. I loved this book with its kind but frank description of Evelyn Brand's life -- her passions, her strength, her trials, her triumphs, and her shortcomings. A well-written story of a life well-lived for the Kingdom of Heaven.
