Overview

When Elisabeth Redelstein was small, she wanted to be a nun. But time and conversion to the Seventh-day Adventist church changed her dream. Instead of a habit she wore a nurse�s uniform. Instead of a German convent she lived and worked on three continents, moving easily among the poor as well as the mighty.

This book recounts how Elisabeth took young people and turned them into well-trained nurses. The story of Shanghai, its streets thronged with pedestrians, bicycles, and coolies, and the medical-missionary work. Her years with the family of Chiang Kai-shek. The Nurnberg war crimes trials where she worked as an interpreter and translator. At 63 she helped start a new hospital and training school in Formosa.

This is the story of what one woman can accomplish when God controls her life.
