a blossom in the desert

Lilias Trotter was a faithful woman of God who gave up life as a promising artist to become a missionary in Algeria. I was inspired by her story recently when I read Noel Piper's Faithful women and their extraordinary God.

So I was excited to read this post by Noel Piper. It seems that Lilias Trotter's artwork and reflections are now available in the book A blossom in the desert. How dearly I would love to read it, as well as her biography, A passion for the impossible! But I think I have reached my book quota for the year.

Go on, read them, and tell me what you think.
