Reviews - What do customers think about Gladys Aylward: For the Children of China (Heroes of the Faith)?
The Bravest Small Woman Sep 11, 2006
Anyone who has seen "Inn of the Sixth Happiness" could not help but wonder at the courage of this unassuming woman. The book opens up an entirely different realm as compared to the screen presentation, because the book is able to expand more on the individual hardships and service of Gladys Aylward. It is engrossing right from the beginning and demonstrates her true courage. Ingrid Bergmann's rendition of the character was very good, but a more intimate knowledge of Gladys is possible only in the book. I highly recommend this easy to read, yet comprehensive offering.
