  • Mary Slessor grew up in a slum with an alcoholic father

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.

    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!

    -- Catherine Mackenzie; Children's Editor (Author and CF4K Editor)
