Synopsis

Gladys Aylward No Mountain Too High by Myrna Grant

Many looked on Gladys Aylward's expedition to mainland China as foolhardy and dangerous. It was. On her own, as a single female, she carried her passport and other documents, along with the only money and belongings that she had, in a small briefcase with a teapot and a saucepan tied to the handle. After having purchased her one-way ticket to China, she left the United Kingdom with a single-minded determination to do what God had commanded her. She knew she was meant to go to China - even if no mission was prepared to support her. Unconventional is the only way to describe this journey to the country that would eventually become her home. A theme that would continue throughout her mission work in China where she thwarted authorities, became involved in the Chinese resistance and rescued over 100 children from the invading Japanese army.Written for 9-14 year olds.

Reviews

I was moved by this account and inspired by Gladys's total trust in God's provision. As an adult I would now like to read about her life in more depth. For a younger reader, this is a well-paced version of an inspiring biography which should appeal to both boys and girls. I would heartily recommend it!--Grace Magazine TRY ANOTHER TRAILBLAZERAs well as Gladys Aylward No Mountain too High, I'd recommend that you look at Amy Carmichael, Rescuer by night. This makes up a nice set of female role models from a variety of different background.Amy was from Ireland and was a bit of a dreamer.Gladys was from London and definitely working class.Isobel Kuhn was from America and well educated.It just goes to show that it doesn't matter where you are from or what your background is - God has a job for you to do.--Catherine MacKenzie Author and CF4K Editor It has all the cannot-put down quality one could wish for in such a story. Absolutely ideal for the age group but those older would also enjoy reading it. The 21 chapters are short and would be excellent to read to younger children who still enjoy a bedtime story. The Gospel is interwoven throughout as the life and ministry of Gladys unfolds.'--The Gospel Magazine (Nov/Dec 2003) 'It has all the cannot-put down quality one could wish for in such a story.
