When was the last time we enjoyed a fascinating heroine who knew right from wrong, and shrewdly and daringly practiced it? Edith Cavell, the true life star ofA Cup of Cold Water, is every whit attractively moral, wonderfully human, and wholly interesting. Set in the late 1800s and early 1900s, this carefully researched story presents a deeply engrossing picture of family life, nursing, everyday living, and the horrors of war. Born in England to dedicated Christian parents who guided her with discipline, wit and love, Edith Cavell grew into a caring, independent young woman who forthrightly followed God in all things. Influenced by Florence Nightingale, Edith nursed and led one of the first Nursing Schools in Belgium before and during World War I. Brave and resourceful, she cared for all life, animal and human, friend and enemy. The intricacies of living and problems she faced will be very familiar to today’s readers., resonating with their hearts and imaginations.

In the concluding Author’s Note, Catherine Farenhorst gives an interesting explanation of how she frames her story from the known facts, adding interest by using a few scenes that grew from her knowledge of the subject but are historical fiction. Indeed, in A Cup of Cold Water, as our knowledge of Edith Cavell grows we will envision a live, breathing person well worth knowing.

The German’s hated Edith Cavell for the help she bravely gave the Allies. They wanted to wipe her out of all memory. But God had other ideas. This book will leave you asking yourself many questions, not the least of which is: Could I calmly face a firing squad knowing that is what the Lord wants me to do?
