I'm currently using this book in my quiet times and meditating on it page by page. It is one of the most amazing books I've ever had the joy to live in - Lilias Trotter is one of my heroes - another Hebrews 13:7 example. She lived and breathed in the audience of God, for the King alone.

Excellent - Lilias has become a spiritual mother to me this year. Highly recommend this collection of paintings and quotations, as well as the biographical film “Many Beautiful Things,” about the life and work of Lilias Trotter.

This book is a perfect coffee table book, full of art and beautiful thoughts.
I got it from the library so I didn't read the entire thing but skipped through it.
Having the background of the biography was helpful to understand the short thoughts and having this book is a great addition of the biography to see more of her art.

Beautiful sketches and watercolors as well as biography of this truly unusual missionary. The sleuthing of the editor was also fun to hear!

There is a great documentary about her called Many Beautiful Things. I watched it first and was inspired to read more.
This book has many of her paintings and devotional/journal entries.

Lilias teaches me about the joy of saying Yes to God. I am thankful for this sweet book of nuggets from her journals and writings, as well as her compelling art work.

"A Blossom in the Desert" is filled with wonderful devotional thoughts and illustrations by Lilias Trotter, who lived in the second half of the 19th century. It is so beautiful and thought provoking that I finished it in two sittings!

Beautiful art with beautiful ideas. So often life involves blooming in a desert, only possible with God's providential care.

I was attracted to the watercolors in this book not so much its text. Interesting story of a woman trained in painting by Ruskin who goes on to be a missionary.
