All reviews by Faith Cook

Faith Cook, daughter of Stanley and Norah Rowe, missionaries of the China Inland Mission (now OMF), was born in north-west China. After missionaries were evicted from the country in 1951, she returned to the UK and attended Clarendon School in North Wales before proceeding to teacher training college in Bromley, Kent. She married Paul Cook in 1961, and they served several evangelical churches in the Midlands and Yorkshire before his retirement. They have a daughter, four sons and ten grandchildren, and now live in Breaston, Derbyshire.

Faith has written of her childhood in China in Troubled Journey, and has authored several other books published by the Trust, including Sound of Trumpets, Singing in the Fire, and two major biographies – Selina, Countess of Huntingdon and William Grimshaw of Haworth.
