Amy Carmichael was a remarkable leader. She lived her life out of a strong belief in a God who is real, all powerful and who provides for all our needs. She had a deep love for people and a determination to help them. She provided a home, an education and health care for hundreds of girls and boys whom she rescued from the jaws of an evil Indian practice of selling children to temple prostitution. When Amy Carmichael first arrived in Dohnavur, India, it was a barren plain; she transformed it into a valley of springs. The Dohnavur Fellowship she established survived the turbulent times of two World Wars, regular outbreaks of disease and persistent spiritual attack. Amy authored nearly forty books that continue to inspire and challenge many all around the world. Joanna Williamson is a gifted storyteller who is able to weave together the narrative of Amy Carmichael's life with excerpts from her writings which draw the reader intimately into one of the most well-kwn missionaries to ever enter India. This story is filled with life, conviction, pathos and poignancy and is engagingly presented. Dr Timothy C. Tennent - President, Asbury Theological Seminary and Professor of World Christianity
