Dear Mollie, You can’t believe what is happening here in China. . . . Actually, what Mollie can’t believe is that her best friend, Ida, and her family left Virginia to live in a “heathen” country. What about marrying handsome Southern husbands? Going to women’s college together? However, Mollie’s frustration slowly turns to fascination as Ida’s letters describe her exciting life among the Chinese—sea worms for supper, wearing men’s pants, Chinese New Year, and helping with the amazing missionary work of Lottie Moon.
But as the years go by, China endures war, disease, and rebellion, and Molly becomes more and more worried about Ida. Realizing that each letter she receives could be the last, Mollie wants to help her beloved pen pal. But how . . . and at what price?
HELPING HER FRIEND MEANS
CHANGING HER LIFE . . . FOREVER.
