The inspirational story of a young girl that is told primarily through her written letters. The girl, Bertha Rasmusen, was born June 4, 1885 and died April 17,1901 at the age of fifteen. At the age of eleven she became intensely concerned about the children of famine in India and this concern impelled her missionary aspirations, both at home and abroad.
