Wow, how different life was then! Susanna Wesley was a strong woman, a devoted wife, and a loving mother. She had 19 children, only 9 of which survived to adulthood. Mr. Dallimore expounds on the home life of Susanna and her husband Samuel as well as several different accounts of the growth and adulthood of their children. He gives a good view into her spiritual understanding and her late-in-life possible salvation experience.

Easy reading about a very inspirational woman, and the hard life she lived. I said in a "halfway" review that the author did not include footnotes, but that is not true; he did, but as I observed, he prefaces many statements with stuff like "no doubt" or "we can be certain" when he has just mentioned contradictions, and SELDOM explains HOW we can be sure. I found this to be irritating. I'd rate the book 2 stars, because it wasn't bad, but neither was it great.

Not a great bio. I felt the author drew conclusions without making it clear HOW he came to those conclusions. He seemed torn between the sad events of her life (husband constantly in debt, burying nine children) and praising her as the mother of John and Charles Wesley. Her daughters' lives were for the most part heart-breaking. Now I'm interested to read more about John and Charles, and certainly I give thanks for not having been born in those times (1669-1742).

Did you know that Susanna's children didn't think she was saved until a few years before her death? Not Dallimore's best biography, but nevertheless a fun read.

I read this book very quickly, and it held my attention. I didn't realize how much hardship she experienced.
Found in a second hand bookstore - thought worth a look ...
