I don't give any book 5 stars as I think it can apppear unrealistic and have the opposite of the desired result, yet this was excellent. aS times I found myself covered in goodsebumps by the moving scenes of very ordinary lives, from the worst of backgrounds and who society had rejected. But there was nothing ordinary about the life of Amy Carmichael herself.
A Protestant Christian missionary in India, who opened an orphanage and founded a mission in Dohnavur. She served in India for 55 years without furlough and wrote many books about the missionary work there.
