“The Forward and Chapters 1, 2 and 11 have been solely the work of Miss Ruth Mary Fox…. Grace Coppernoll has carried on Miss Fox's work using letters and special accounts as resource materials…” Author's note.
The Franciscan Missionary Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows began in China in 1939 as a community founded in the Missions and for the Missions, by an Italian Franciscan missionary, Bishop Rafael Palazzi. Due to the Communist takeover, the Sisters were forced to flee from the Motherhouse in Hengyang, Hunan, to Hong Kong.
