Miss Annie

by Annie Geortz
256 pages, Biography/History
Reviewed by Victor

Encouraging story from India and Prairie Canada.


This is the life story of Annie Geortz, a missionary to India. It chronicles her family's start in Saskatchewan and her subsequent school days and experiences before and then during her time in India, where she stayed over thirty years.


The morality is straight forward. The book is written with a Biblical world-view in mind, so all the people mentioned are men and women with a fallen nature. Sometimes they sin, but it is recognized as such.

Spiritual Content

The author writes of God, demons, an ultimate heaven and hell, salvation, justification, and love. Most of the book deals with spiritual matters and their effects.


Several accidental deaths, a beating, loss of limbs, and an assault with a sharpened rock.

Drug and Alcohol Content

A man is mentioned who drinks.

Sexual Content

There are marriages and children and orphans. Nothing explicit.

Crude or Profane Language or Content

No crude language; however, there is cheating, lying, thievery, and jealousy.


This biography of Miss Geortz is a very encouraging one for those who are not sure whether they can trust God and be saved, as well as for those who aren't sure what they possibly have that they could offer to God. I found it tremendously useful, and it is good to think how Christians serve the same Lord in such diverse places as India and Canada. However, there are a lot of history details about her life, so if you are not into that a biography may not be your book of choice.

Editor's Note:

This book is very rare outside of Canada (for instance, it is not available on such sites as Amazon), but can be found on Google Books.

Fun Score: 3.5
