Summary
Lilias Trotter was an artist, proclaimed by art critic John Ruskin to be potentially one of the best artists of the nineteenth century. But she left the art world behind to pioneer a mission work in Muslim North Africa. This is the true story of the woman who inspired the hymn "Turn your eyes upon Jesus."
