Lotus Buds by Amy Carmichael, a Protestant Christian missionary in India, who opened an orphanage and founded a mission in Dohnavur, is a touching look at some of the children that were rescued. This story was written around 1905.
It is full of delightful descriptions of the little girls she took into her care. She and her workers showered love on the little girls. As the chapters unfold, we realizes there was something sinister behind the need for the rescue of these little ones, many just infants when Miss Carmichael takes them in, saving them from becoming temple prostitutes.
