Test Cricketer CT Studd said that if he married, it would only be to a Hallelujah Lass from The Salvation Army. He went as a missionary to China with the China Inland Mission (and later served in India and Central Africa). Priscilla Livingstone Stewart spent the first two years after her conversion working for The Salvation Army in Ireland. She then went to China with CIM. She met Studd, they fell in love and married. Charlie Studd got his wish.

From Ashes to Glory tells the powerful story of CT Studd and the remarkable Priscilla. (Published in March 2014.)
