Publisher's Description

When Others Shuddered: Eight Women Who Refused to Give Up is the story of eight women called to serve God and who, in doing so, changed the world. They lived at the turn-of-the-century, rubbing shoulders with the well-known men of their time like John Rockefeller, Marshall Field, and Dwight Lyman Moody.

 Each of these women was unique. They were single and married, black and white, wealthy and poor, beautiful and plain, mothers and childless. Yet, each felt called to make a difference and to do something - to meet a pressing need in her world.

These women wanted to live lives less ordinary. Their stories inspire us to follow God's calling in our own lives. They teach us that each individual person can make a difference. These eight women will show you how God can use your life to change the world.

    The Synopsis:

    "Travel back in time to turn-of-the-century America. Skirts trailed the floor, hats were a must, and corsets were commonplace. People traveled by horse and carriage, locomotive, or ship. The first skyscrapers were built. The World's Fair arrived in Chicago.

    Life was swiftly changing in the United States, but for most, it was also difficult. Men and women flooded cities in a desperate search for work. Former slaves fled north seeking freedom and education. Crime began to rise as brothels and saloons became commonplace in American cities.

    It was in this world that Fanny Crosby, Mary McLeod Bethune, Nettie McCormick, Sarah Dunn Clarke, Emma Dryer, Virginia Asher, Evangeline Booth, and Amanda Berry Smith lived and worked and served. They were ordinary women called to serve God. They followed His leading, risking their own safety and reputation. In doing so, they changed the world forever.

    The stories of these eight historic, faithful women will change your life as well as you see what God can do through the willing hearts of ordinary women."

    My Review:

    This book was great! It was written very well and I love the way it is laid out. It is not like a biography that just talks about facts or what that person did, it is written in a fiction sort of way, telling the story of each woman. The book is also little, so you are not intimidated by endless words of nonfiction (I am a fiction gal, so if I pick up a nonfiction book, it either never gets finished or it is very small_.)

    Each woman has three chapters to herself, starting with their childhood, then progressing into the rest of their life. There are quotes from each woman filled throughout the book, as well as favorite scriptures, and accomplishments.

    I really enjoyed reading about these women and I encourage you to pick up a copy! It makes for a great history substitute!

    But not a great read. The information is well researched, but the stories of these women was fictionalized. This book will give you broad background information about the eight women, but should not be considered biographical. It is also written at a level for elementary readers. Each woman's story followed a predictable pattern, almost a formual. Each woman was somehow connected to D. L. Moody, and most were set in Chicago.

    This book was a disappointment since I have yet to find a book published by Moody Press that I didn't love. On top of that someone I highly respect, Jill Briscoe wrote the Foreward. I was expecting so much more.

    I was sent the book by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.
