In this autobiography, readers see how Anya Derrick’s life has been intimately connected to the earthly city of Jerusalem in Palestine. There, surrounded by political conflict and religious tensions, she was raised in the spirit of Holy Russia, as manifested in the life of the Russian Ecclesiastical Mission, the Mount of Olives convent, the Gethsemane convent, and the Bethany School. Her spiritual life was nurtured by St John (Maximovitch) of Shanghai and San Francisco, Archbishop Antony (Sinkevich) of Los Angeles, Archpriest George Grabbe, Mother Mary (Robinson), and in particular the English priest-monk Lazarus (Moore), as well as other luminaries of the Russian Church Abroad. Through the author’s eyes, a new perspective can be gained on their pastoral ministry and personalities. Her experience with these people and places sustained her faith during subsequent wilderness years when the Church was geographically distant from Anya and her burgeoning family. After marriage in America, she struggled to preserve her cultural and religious heritage and even more so to share these with her husband and instill them in her children. Anya’s life opens up a very different 20th century. She shows how current situations have been shaped by past events such as the Bolshevik revolution, Russian civil war, and the Arab–Israeli conflict. She offers a window into the struggles, life, and aspirations of the Russian diaspora after the Communist takeover of their ancestral homeland. This vivid work will speak to and inspire anyone fighting to maintain the faith and practices of their youth.
