Devout and charismatic, Aimee Semple McPherson led millions in prayer. A pioneer in female travelling evangelism, McPherson was believed to possess a healing touch. Great masses of the sick and the burdened gathered from far and wide to hear her sermons and perhaps to be cured by the miracle worker. This is the story of one woman's extraordinary life full of missionary adventures in the Far East, fervent radio preaching, empire building, and spectacular pulpit performances.
