"One of [Toronto's] new arrivals is a remarkable Chinese woman, Florence Tim Oi Li. Now in her seventies she has come to enjoy a peaceful retirement living with her brother and sister-in-law after a life of upheaval and turmoil. ..... Florence Li is a priest and when she was ordained in exceptional circumstances in war-torn China, she was the first woman ever to be ordained priest by an Anglican bishop. .... I visited Florence Li, or Li Tim Oi to use the Chinese form, in Toronto in the spring of 1984. I accompanied her as she went about her parish work and recorded a lengthy interview with her over a number of days. .... Li Tim Oi's story is a story of the Anglican Church, it is a story of revolutionary China, it is a story of Hong Kong and its unique 'unequal' relationship with mainland China, it is a story of war between China and Japan, but above all it is the story of a rare and extraordinary person". -- Intro.
