A shaky 4 stars here--overall, I liked this bio of Aylward. I like the pacing of the overall thread and the information included. We get a sense of Aylward the person without too many imagined thoughts (although there are plenty of imagined one-sentence prayers, still they seem in keeping with the character portrayed). My biggest complaint is that the prose feels choppy in places and, if the reader isn't familiar with Chinese history, might be considered incomplete. Still, it's quite readable fo [...]

Very good book. Nothing like the movie. Much better. The movie is not a true picture of the lady. The Inn of called, "The Inn of the Eighth Happiness" not sixthShe never kissed a manShe turned down the proposal of marriga due to him not being a ChristianYang was not kill in front of her, he became a refuge and was never heard from againd many other differnces.Still see the movie, it's better than must on the arir now.

The story of Gladys Aylward is great, I just didn't enjoy the book so much. I had seen the movie in her life a few months ago and read how she couldn't stand the film's depiction, so I wanted to read the real story, as I soak in missionary books always. At first I did not really like the woman, but you can see how she grew in the Lord over time. Many lives were changed and spared because of Miss Aylward's bravery and love for others. It was nice to learn about.

This book made it sound like Aylward single-handedly brought Christianity to China. While I'm sure that a lot of what she did was really very ground-breaking, I had a hard time believing a lot of the stories in the book.

While "The Little Woman" is the best because it's Gladys' own telling of her life, this is a noteworthy supplement.

The low rating is for the writing, not the story -- which is excellent. When it comes to female missionaries, Gladys Aylward rivals Amy Carmichael in both spiritual vigor and sheer awesomeness.
