Also included are notes for further discussion on each woman at the end of the book.
Interestingly most of these stories are directly linked to the ministry of Dwight L. Moody in some way. They were all in the same era, so I guess that is easily explainable..
I really enjoyed this glimpse into these women's lives and the impact they had in their time. It is always great to hear of others lives, their determination and what they achieved. The struggles they overcame also are remarkable. I found this book very inspiring.
Please note that I received a copy of this book in exchange for my review however this review is entirely my own.
