Wow! What a great book showing gods love and grace! I think that it is so amazing that eventhough many people criticized Dr. Barnardo he still shows gods love through helping the homeless children of London. This book has taught me to not worry about things but pray about them and God will answer my prayers. Overall this was a great story that i would recommend to ANYONE!!!

A really wonderful biography about a really wonderful man! A great companion to read with 'Ned: Barnardo Boy' by Barbara Coyle.
