Granny Brand: Her Story by Dorothy Clarke Wilson (1996)

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. They had a hard job of it because of the Caste system of India and the lost people themselves. It took 6-7 years of prayer and work before they even seen a little promise.

I did have a little problem with Granny Brand. Even though she could and would forgive people in India for hurting her or her family
This is a very interesting and in-depth look at missionary life and all it involves! Would be a great read for anyone looking to serve on the mission field!
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.
