Comment: This is a 256 page 1959 hardcover edition published by the Reprint Society in London, as pictured. NOT ex-library. The book is rated Acceptable by Amazon guidelines because the dust jacket is missing. The end papers, title pages, text and the 8 pages of photographs are clean and free of owner names, notes, highlighting, etc. The yellow cloth covers are tightly bound, and show gold titles on a black background on the spine, and have minor wear at the surfaces and corners. The front loose end paper has been removed. Page 225 has a couple of significant jagged creases. Foxing along lower page edges. Faint brown circular stains on the edges of 3 or 4 pages. Proceeds of sale go to the Memphis Library Friends and support the Memphis Public Library. wjf

Format: Hardcover
This true story was made into the movie, 'The Inn of the Sixth Happiness' which starred Ingrid Bergman. It is a tribute to the remarkable woman from Edmonton, formerly a parlourmaid, who worked in China for twenty years.

With her mission work, she proved that hardship cannot eradicate the human soul, as she led one hundred homeless children to safety over the mountains across the Yellow River, 3oo miles West, to escape the Japanese bombs in 1940. It was a twelve, day march, which ended successfully. She had a determination to go on unto death.

Gladys Aylward was a most remarkable woman with a heart of gold, someone who loved her fellowman, but especially the children. I knew such a woman named Virginia Barnes who missed out on marriage to go to Vanderbilt University, something females didn't do. She was from a country background, but her parents thought that she was 'special.' When I went to Martin College, she was the first person to be friendly to a young girl far from home. She loved to take tours and, in England, spent most of her time in lines to get food instead of seeing the 'sights.' I would be the opposite, forgoing the food to see the beauties of this world. That's why I am such a small woman. She adopted my family of three boys as she was an old maid who lost her one chance at marriage and was always sorry she had done so. Barbara Pelot shows her attributes by wearing low-cut, sexy tops to offset her solid white hair, along with real pearls to show her wealth, as she decides the business of beer joints, restaurants, and missions the town should follow.

Gladys continued to work at the Hope Mission in Hong Kong after the war.
