After coming to China to work as a missionary in the early 1930s, Gladys Aylward adopts several orphans and tries to save nearly a hundred more during the war between China and Japan.
Six-year old Mei-en screamed in terror when she realized her gypsy owner was about to sell her to a foreign lady. Times were hard in the mountainous region of china in 1934, and orphans were often sold for pennies. But foreigners in china were considered "devils," and Mei-en thought surely the little woman in Chinese clothes would eat her for supper! But this time Mei-en's new owner was the compassionate and respected missionary, Gladys Aylward. One day outside her new home, Mei-en saw wonderful silver "birds" flying in the sky-but her delight turned to dread when they began dropping bombs that exploded all over the city. Suddenly their lives, and those of nearly a hundred orphan children, were in terrible danger!
A Trailblazer Book. Once an orphan herself, Mei-en works hard to help the young English missionary, Gladys Aylward, save nearly a hundred Chinese orphans from lives of terror.
