Mary Elizabeth (Lizzie) Brown's story - a story of quiet dedication and remarkable achievement - is set against a background of life in the Pacific Islands, New Zealand and Australia in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Controversial issues in church and society at the time - war, conscription, higher education for women, women in leadership in the church, and women and the vote - are also part of the backdrop to her story.
