As a young woman Pauline eventually realised that teaching was her life calling. After some years in the then notorious East End of London, she worked in New Guinea, and later, Ghana, where in both she became known as ‘Little Children’s Mother’.
She was fifty when she experienced a change in direction. Marrying a widower, Joel, she not only shared in his pastoral ministry but God called her to write. Her children’s books became a key that opened a ministry in schools. Recently, now forty years on, she was amused to hear a child had referred to her as ‘the little girl who tells us stories from the Bible’.
‘Freya’s Fragrance’, while a romantic novel, has become another opportunity for her to continue to retell and bring to life, some of these wonderful stories from the Bible.
