Agnes Annis Mother and Missionary
By Lynn Wyvill
A proper, private woman and busy as the day is long, Agnes Gregg Davis Annis birthed and raised children in China, amidst riots and beheadings. In the Canadian countryside, meetings added to the mix of a growing family in a minister’s highly visible home.
This grandmother, who died when the author was five years old, never spoke about the orphanage where she lived for ten years of her childhood, nor of her father’s second family. Readers can reopen the pages of the family album and look into her very eyes, understand her challenges and reach part of our past through the legacy of Agnes Annis: Mother and Missionary. A vividly-told family saga, spanning two continents and a challenging way of life that Wyvill conveys with real energy and depth.
