If you are looking for an inspiring, God-focused story of bravery and perseverance, I would highly recommend Gladys Alyward from the Christian Heroes: Then & Now series. This book is the biography of a young English maid in the 1930s who feels called to be a missionary in China. She has some very difficult setbacks that she must overcome, including failing missionary school and not being able to afford the trip to China. When she finally arrives, she struggles to build a relationship with her mentor, and she must learn to tolerate taunting from the villagers. Will she ever be able to adapt to this foreign culture, and truly be able to help and communicate with the local people?
Read and learn from Glady’s amusing, heartbreaking, and enthralling adventures as she follows God and serves the people of China. God uses her for great purposes - it is so cool to read about! The writing can be basic at times, but the story is wonderful! ♥️ I think most girls ages 10-14 would enjoy it.
