Heartwarming, real life story of Mary Jones, a young girl living in rural Wales in the late 1700s. Mary was a popular girl who loved her parents, worked hard and was keen to learn but most of all she longed to have a bible of her own. But Mary knew that Bibles were hard to come by and if she was fortunate enough to find one, it would be expensive so her dearest wish looked as if it would be an impossible dream! But, after six years of saving hard she sets off to walk a round trip of 50 miles on her bare feet, in the hope that she will be able to buy a Bible and bring it home.
Mary's dream comes true and her dedication to God and determination to get a copy of His word inspires the setting up of the 'British and Foreign Bible Society'. An inspiring story of a young girl's commitment to God and love for His word.
