Really truly an amazing woman! She had such unending focus on God and making her life count and those of her children! She went through trial after trial and never lost her faith and courage! Loved learning about her!
A wonderful biography. Full of good morals and inspiring examples, but not without its "real life" realities.
A very interesting and informative read, but the writing isn't the best and there are a few errors which must have slipped through the editing process (I saw one typo, and twice the author had written Susanna as having one too many still-surviving children).

I found it interesting to read about what was being learnt about Christianity at that time - specifically, that salvation is personal and instant, and not by doing good things. Most importantly, we don't have to just 'wait and hope' until aft
What a woman of God, to have a husband that left her for a year just because she did not say amen to one of his prayers and yet she still honored him in his house, She is truly a Proverbs 31:30 woman "Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised" Every woman and even men should read this book about a Godly woman

It was good to read ... However there was a lot of history of English kings as well and not all of this was relevant

not sure how much my kids will get into a story like this someday but I found it educational; didn't realize that the revelation of personal salvation came from John Wesley
