If you want to know how it was to be a missionary kid in the days when they endured years of separation from their parents and communication was by letter only, read this book.
How does a child feel when their siblings die? Faith Cook will tell you. It made me weep A moving story of missionary sacrifice told by an Isaac born on the altar of her parents' chosen
calling in war torn China and then troubled Malaya.I know how it feels to take a child to boarding school and see them cry the whole way but thankfully we were separated for a month at a time only.
Here is what a four year separation means. Faith Cook questions her parents' sacrifice but never their faith. Read it and be thankful we are in another century now.

This book was written to show that the traditional abandonment of their
children by missionary couples is wholly a bad thing. The case is unassailable.
The book is very moving, and is by no means an attack on the many well-motivated
missionaries it mentions; it just shows how wrong they were. It is a reminder to
all that we should take note of what is in the Bible rather than just following our
traditions. The book also shows God's providence and love for his people.
