This is the kind of book I would like to write someday. Delightful. Delightful. Merrick has ties to Sir Wilfred Grenfell…. what a story. Elliott Merrick’s wife Kate Austen worked in Labrador in Grenfell’s mission. He then wrote the story of her experience in NORTHERN NURSE…. According to Elizabeth Elliot in the preface to the Journals of Jim Elliot, Grenfell inspired a whole generation of missionary adventurers.
