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!
ijlmg5 Stars Out Of 5July 6, 2011ijlmgQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Irene 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.
leeliRaleigh, NCGender: female4 Stars Out Of 5This is a good product for a biblestudyFebruary 7, 2011leeliRaleigh, NCGender: femaleAlthough 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.
