Publishers Description
A solitary woman. A foreign country. An unknown language. An impossible dream? No. With no mission board to support or guide her and less than ten dollars in her pocket, Gladys Aylward left her home in England to answer God's call to take the message of the gospel to China. With the Sino-Japanese War waging around her, she struggled to bring the basics of life and the fullness of God to orphaned children. Time after time, God triumphed over impossible situations, and drew people to Himself. The Little Woman tells the story of one woman's determination to serve God at any cost.With God all things are possible

Great read  Nov 4, 2006
An awe inspiring story of how just one person, with God's help can change the lives of many!
 
A reminder of how fulfilling life can be  Feb 2, 2006
This book encouraged me to give my life completely to God. I saw what He can do with one life! It also reminded me that our battle is not against flesh and blood. There are some stories in this book that will give you chills because they show how God works in the most incredible ways! Enjoy!
 
An amazing story  Jan 28, 2006
Somehow, in our time, the adjective 'unique' has come to be misused and heavily overused. Properly it means hardly more than "only" or "the only one (of of its kind)." There is nothing like this story and surely nobody like Gladys Aylward.

In several pages is told the story of a warlord who converted, was then held prisoner by his own men, escaped, found his way back to Aylward's inn, and knew that "I belong to Jesus" fully explained his life. I cannot adequately summarize this particular story; you have to read the version in the book, which itself obviously condenses a long story.
 
God Working through a Humble Faithful Person  Aug 10, 2003
This book is in my opinion the best one of the biographies of Gladys Aylward. I've read the others, but they were seen through another author and seemed more like adventure stories. This autobiography, however, puts you in Gladys' shoes so you can see and feel her prayerful reliance on God. You'll see God work through this humble parlourmaid, calling her to China and her obedience through the most harrowing circumstances. Gladys did what God told her to do and trusted in God to provide the means, even when it did not seem obvious and the hardships were many.

Every time Gladys got into a dangerous predicament, God would move His Hand and send deliverance, a woman speaking English in Siberia, a Japanese sea captain taking her prisoner, or a Nationalist patrol boat that just happened upon a prayer meeting held at the banks of the Hwang Ho where 100 children asked God to part the river for them to cross.

God worked through Gladys to change the lives of slaves, murderers, children, Mandarin officials, bandit generals, lepers, students and many many ordinary villagers, throughout the remote mountainous area Gladys was called to. And He furnished the way, whether it was as a foot-inspector, or in a prison riot, or while warplanes droned overhead in caves and tents, even to a Tibetan Lamaist monastery and finally to an Irish asylum. Everywhere God called Gladys, He used her to touch and transform thousands of ordinary lives. Gladys arrived in China penniless, and she left China almost 20 years later penniless. Every step of the way she trusted God for His provision and His leading. This is truly a story that will inspire you and teach you what great things God can do through a humble person who trusts and obeys Him.

 
Little Woman - Big Faith  Feb 27, 2003
One of the better mission biographies around. The real story behind the classic movie "The Inn of Sixth Happiness". Gladys shares firsthand some great stories of God's direction and faithfulness. Her simple faith in God and His call will inspire any reader.
