This beautifully crafted and thoroughly researched story describes the life and service of an inspiring woman, Sophie Newton, whose desire to serve Jesus led her to make her home among the people of China for over thirty years.

In telling Sophie's story, the authors acknowledge the realities of a missionary life, with its frustrations, disappointments and conflicts, as well as the specific challenges faced by single women in pioneering and sometimes dangerous settings. Nevertheless, Sophie's deep faith helped her to respond to these challenges with prayerfulness, wisdom, humility and love as she followed God's call. A deaconess, school teacher and builder, preacher, evangelist, mentor and advocate for women's rights, she had the servant heart of her Lord which alone can transform individuals, communities, cultures and belief systems. The fruitfulness of Sophie's ministry shows the ways in which God takes and uses a life thoroughly committed to his service. Recommended reading for those Christians seeking to discover and follow the path of the cross and anyone outside the Christian faith engaging in the search for meaning and contentment in today's post-Christian and post-modern society. Sophie's life story deserves to be on the shelves of bookstores around the world!
