From a box of old letters and memorabilia, Miriam Moran constructs the remarkable life of her mother, an American missionary in war-torn China who died before her children could remember her. Grace Liddell Cox was a strong-minded farm girl from Iowa who early dedicated herself to the spread of the gospel in China. A civil war was underway when she arrived, and war with Japan was brewing. Yet, with a steady trust in her heavenly Father, she made the long journey to her post in Yunnan province, crisscrossing the country again in her faithful service with the China Inland Mission. Her letters home detail her experiences with the people she came to love, her interactions with fellow missionaries, her own marriage and children, her harrowing escape from the Japanese army, and her undiminished confidence in God in each new circumstance. Someone to Be with Roxie shares the fascinating life story of a young missionary who gave her life to God for service in China, and found him entirely worthy of her trust.
