Paperback. As New. Dorothy Carey recounts the story of a tremendous sacrifice made in the cause of world evangelism and of a woman who has been unjustly treated by history. "Perhaps her sacrifice was not a voluntary one, but it was a sacrifice nonetheless", observes James Beck. Dorothy Carey, the wife of the founder of modern missions, was the first of a wave of pioneer wives in missions. She played a difficult role in making that ministry possible. Beck's unique background in psychology and his exhaustive study of records of the family's life in England, William Carey's voluminous journals, and accounts by others allow him to provide new insights into the woman whom Carey's biographers have only villified. Dorothy's story deserves to be told, and the author does so in a remarkable and memorable fashion.
