This volume is from 1908.From the book's Introduction:There is no form of Christian literature so helpful and inspiring as Biography, and especially as the record of those who partake largely of the C


hrist life. The simple story of Ann Preston, better known as " Holy Ann," is strikingly illustrative of this truth. The writer, Mrs. Helen Bingham, of Toronto, has done her work well, for it has evidently been a labour of love. The book might well be called " Grace Abounding," for it savours largely of Bunyan's experience of grace. For well-nigh fifty years I have heard of this unique disciple of the Master, from the time she came out from Ireland as a maid in the household of Dr. Reid, in whose family she served, both in Ireland and in Canada, as long as the family existed as a household. To those who knew Holy Ann there is no need of introduction, because they will be delighted to read a record of incidents with which they are acquainted, and many of them will exclaim, " The half has not been told." I have read the manuscript from beginning to end, and indulge the hope that it may lead a large number to do likewise. The story simply fascinated me, and as I read I felt this book would prove a great blessing. As it is the only worthy way of continuing the saintly influence of Holy Ann, I sincerely hope that it may be read and re-read by hosts who never heard the voice or looked upon the face of that rare specimen of " Grace Abounding." JOHN POTTS. Toronto, July 25, 1907. --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.
