This devotional classic, by Lilias Trotter, was first published by Marshall Brothers, London and printed by E. Nister of Nuremberg (Bavaria). While undated, the writing falls clearly within the window of summer/fall 1895 at a time when she was taking an extended break in England. Trotter’s health, never robust, had been seriously compromised after seven years of unremitting labor in the testing climate of Algiers. The result was this devotional classic, born of her own spiritual struggles and tempered with her depth of life experience. It reflects Trotter’s deep grounding in Scripture, and is animated by her growing sensibility to God speaking through His natural world. Though popular upon publication, with numerous reprintings, it had been out of print for decades. This facsimile edition is reproduced from the first edition and is faithful in both the presentation of text and colorplates. This Lilias Trotter Legacy edition includes a new additional Foreword by Kathy Keller.
