Elaine Townsend, wife of the founder of Wycliffe Bible Translators, lived an eventful and inspiring life in service to her Lord and ours. Simona Gorton's biography captures her unique personality and her love for the Savior in a delightful way. While this book will be an encouragement for women, young and old alike, men would be wise to read it as well.
