Publisher's Summary

Amy Carmichael's (1867-1951) life was one of simple, determined obedience to God, regardless of the consequences. Her service in India is a vivid example of the impact one person who will fear God and nothing else can have. Driven by love, sustained by faith and determination, this young woman from Northern Ireland defied the cruel barriers of India's caste system.

Encouraging book!

What a wonderful testimony of a faithful servant of Christ! I listened to this audio book every time I had dishes to wash or work on the computer, and even on the sabbath as I watched the baby play in the grass! I have been encouraged and challenged by the life of Amy Carmichael! What a life she lives to God!y

Wonderful to read about missionaries from the past

I loved all the realism. Life in far off places wasn't Heaven on Earth. I like that the authors didn't candy coat the missionary work. It's not victory all the time on the mission field and the Benges' portray exactly that. I loved hearing about how Amy was so innovative by wearing the clothing of the culture she was ministering to. She didn't let well-meaning and ill-meaning people get her down. She dived into the culture and lived with the people she was reaching. They were not her servants, she was their servant. Well worth reading!

Amazing story of faith

This is the most beautiful story of a woman who sacrificed her comfort and personal interest to follow God. Simple writing, simple reading, powerful story of faith filled life.

Great inspirational read!

Love the story, what an incredible life Amy Carmichael lived and what a difference she made in the lives of all those she served. I am definitely going to be looking for more of these books, there is supposed to be a series of them. The narrator did a beautiful job and I couldn't wait to continue listening! It ended far too soon! :-)

loved it...I learned so much more about her.

I knew she was a missionary to India but never knew she started in Japan.

Interesting, but not as good as some of the others

It was interesting at points, but it didn't grab my attention like some of the other books in the series. It seemed to have less memorable moments than most books I've listened to about missionaries. But if you want to learn the story behind who Amy Carmichael was, it will certainly accomplish that!

Remarkable woman

This is a remarkable story about a truly remarkable woman. I strongly recommend it. My only criticism would be the frustrating frequent mispronunciation of Keswick throughout first part of the book.
