I am loving the Heroes of the Faith series of biographies. I borrowed the book Inspiring Women of the Faith from a friend, which contains four of these biographies. I’ve just finished Florence Nightingale: Lady With the Lamp, and loved it. Most biographies, in my experience, start out fascinating and lose steam as you go, as the subject of the book ages. This one about Florence Nightingale, however, like the previous one about Sojourner Truth, kept my interest all the way through.

Exciting read

This is an excellent book for finding out what motivated Ms .ightingale and the problems she overcame in the Crimean war. There is no suspense as you would expect in a novel, but she was an exciting and determined woman who even terrified Queen Victoria herself!

“Live your life while you have it. Life is a splendid gift. There is nothing small in it, for the greatest things grow by God's smallest. But to live your life, you must discipline it. You must not fritter it away in fair purpose, erring act, inconstant will, but must make your thought, your work, your acts all work to the same end, and that end not in self but in God. This is what we call character.” ~Florence Knightingale

The Lady with the Lamp! This was the first book that my mom bought me when I'm still 5 years old. I could still remember it. :D I love this book. Though it wasn't my typical genres that time but I was enticed on the story itself on how she helped the wounded during the Crimean War. A good book to recommend.
