Product Description

  • Isobel Kuhn questioned whether God even existed.
  • Mary Slessor grew up in a slum with an alcoholic father
  • Joni Eareckson broke her neck during a diving accident
  • Corrie Ten Boom just lived with her family in a little watch shop in Harlaam, Holland.

    What is so special about these girls and how did they change their world? Isobel Kuhn believed in God and then obeyed his call to travel to Asia to tell the Lisu people about God. Mary Slessor, put herself through evening classes and eventually became the first white woman to venture into the interior of Africa. Joni Eareckson struggled through her treatment and endless hospital visits to become the inspiration to many Christians. Corrie Ten Boom spent most of her life on the line to save the lives of many Jews in the hiding place, a hidden room behind her wardrobe in a little watch shop in Harlaam, Holland. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.

    Editorial Reviews

    This is a wonderful book - in fact it's a wonderful series. Irene Howat writes with a real warmth and insight. People that you have never met come alive on the page. Christian legends and unsung heroes all become friends you can understand and look up to. In a world where role models of real integrity are few and far between the Lightkeeper's series fills the gap!

      Irene Howat lives in Scotland so there is some spelling differences. Like colour vs. color and realised vs. realized. The book is great and there are no spelling errors that I have found.

      Although the book is good for introducing young ladies to these 10 missionaries, I was surprised at the typos in the book. Words like realized were spelled realised. If you can overlook the typos, it is a good book.
