This book is broken into two parts: her biography and the saying of M. Gavrilia. I really enjoyed the first part. I have mixed feelings about the 2nd part.
I found reading the story of her life was worth it for me. As always, I find reading about people (especially missionaries) who totally put their life into God's hands to be very helpful for my own spiritual encouragement. Her life of faith and love is not only inspiring, but something I want to follow. However, her sayings were a bit disappointing and fell flat for me. I often would read a saying of M. Gavrilia and think to myself, "I need to talk with my priest about that one." There were quite a few and I should have been putting sticky notes on them. Its not that everything she said was confusing, but there were enough of them that I felt that the book was becoming less and less inspiring for me.
