an irish saint the life story of ann preston holy ann

Book cover
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 Christ 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.
