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.

These women—Fanny Crosby, Mary McLeod Bethune, Nettie McCormick, Sarah Dunn Clarke, Emma Dryer, Virginia Asher, Evangeline Booth, and Amanda Berry Smith—were 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.

    Growing up I loved all my classes in History, English, and what we called Social Studies. Their one unifying link being stories. I loved learning about the people and faces from the near and distant past and was often within reach of yet another book delving into some brand new tale.

    I also quickly realized that within the Christian curriculum I used, there was a great gap in women holding central positions in these stories. Since this was pre-internet days (actually to be honest that house is still in a slow zone for internet thanks to funky geography) the days of hopping online to make up the deficit were far away.

    This is why Jamie Janoz's When Others Shuddered is so important. Here readers are introduced to multiple strong women who worked alongside the men of whom we've heard so many stories but were active, passionate, and strong in their own ways and made their own impacts on their communities and the church.

    This book is an odd combination of recorded facts and comments and fictional recreations of the narratives these women's lives wove. This just serves to make the book more engaging and, in fact, I can easily see Janoz's book adding some much needed balance and life into a homeschooling curriculum.

    The women are easy to engage with throughout the pages. Some came from poverty while others were of wealth. Some women remained single, others married, some become mothers, others dove into their work. Each woman faced challenges, heartbreak, and set backs before moving forward once again. Although these women accomplished great works in their faith Janoz was careful to include what they triumphed against and kept these women as just that - living breathing women who are relatable role models, something our girls need.

    I also appreciated the readability of this book. Although I am, admittedly, a nerd. I can easily picture women of all ages finding themselves lost within these pages. The text is easy enough for pre-teens or late elementary students but even as a mom myself I found myself lost in these stories of life, They are addictive.

    Overall, this is a solid little book and a great launching pad into discovering other lesser known women of faith.

    4 out 5 stars.

    I received this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion. The views expressed are entirely my own.

    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.
