Overview

May Nicholson was a notorious fighting drunk in Ferguslie Park, Paisley until her conversion when she was 34. The last 22 years have been spend tirelessly working for the Lord as an outreach worker in Ferguslie Park, Church of Scotland Project Worker in Mid Craigie (a deprived area of Dundee) and now in Govan where she founded the Preshal (Gaelic for precious) Trust.May's biography reads as though she is telling her story and is interspersed by accounts and comments from other people. Her story is so incredible that it needs other people to verify what she says; one of May's doctors, a minister, those who come to the Preshal Trust and The Duchess of Montrose all help to tell this compelling story.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
May has the same love for the poorest of the poor and the richest of the rich. She is at home with lords and ladies and with the lowly and loneliest. Living out God's love with and among the poor, she reflects Jesus who, "though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor that we might be made rich".' ~ Chuck Wright

The key to May's amazing ministry is in her prayer after conversion: "I'd like to have millions and millions of Jesus' love so that wherever I go it would spill out on the people I meet". I have seen this love spill out on drug addicts and duchesses, politicians and prisoners in Dundee, Paisley, Northern Ireland and Romania. I can't wait to see what May does next!' ~ Louise S Purvis

'Anyone who has lived with drug addicts and alcoholics knows how elusive hope is....This is the sort of story that could be labelled "unbelievable", except that it happens to be true! It's told honestly, with helpful angles from those whose lives interacted with May, and with an ever-present sympathy and understanding for all. Read it; study it in your churches to see what you can do; and give it to anyone who needs hope.' ~ John Nicholls (Associate Minister, Smithton Free Church of Scotland, Inverness, formerly Chief Executive, London City Mission)

'Her story is an eloquent testimony to the saving and transforming power of Christ.' ~ British Church Newspaper
