6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Gail Cooke HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 8, 2004
Format: Paperback
As a young girl Eliza Shirley could not avoid the ragged and dirty streets that led to her father's mill. She was touched by the sight of children begging and annoyed by being taunted with "Nothin' but a girl!"
She was a fortunate young woman in nineteenth century England, and she loved the accoutrement of her pleasant life - crinolines, kid gloves, a warm house. She especially loved her best friend, Beck.
However, Eliza's comfortable existence will soon change in a dramatic and surprising way: Who should come to Coventry but the Hallelujah Lassies bringing with them a rather scraggly group of followers who sing and clap tambourines?
Almost immediately Eliza knows with certainty that this is the work that God would have her do. There is nothing that will stop her and nothing did. She eventually became a backbone of the Salvation Army.
Wendy Lawton has written a warm, uplifting account of this remarkable woman's life.
- Gail Cooke

Format: Paperback
What an inspiring story! I absolutely loved Wendy Lawton's book about Eliza Shirley. I loved the prayer wall, especially, and the lob stew. I loved the description of the clothing and all the vocabulary words. But mostly I'm amazed and encouraged by the Lassies' courage.

The writing was wonderful. I could feel my heart race increasing whenever they did the open-airs. A great story for any age!

Format: Paperback
What a delightful read. The story of Eliza Shirley is written with adventure and sophistication--yet, it is easy to read. This book is for all readers. I'm over 39, but didn't realize it was written for ages 8-12 until I read the fine print on the back cover. Next, I shall share it with my 12 year old daughter. Lawton does an excellent job of weaving character, plot, and history to create an exciting story that touched my heart and deepened my love and respect for The Salvation Army. Lawton's book demonstrates that regardless of age, gender, size, or shape, we can be pioneers of change through our faith in Christ. If you buy this book as a gift for someone, read it first--you'll be blessed.

Format: Paperback
What an exciting, adventurous read. Lawton tells the story of Eliza Shirley, a teenager growing up in nineteenth-century England. Eliza was a pioneer with a gift of evangelism who brought the good works of The Salvation Army to America. I have a deeper respect for the work of The Salvation Army and the saints who serve.
Lawton's sophisticated writing style, and thorough research allow a delightful story to be enjoyed by the young and mature readers. As a 39 and holding reader, I didn't realize the book was written to ages 8-12 until I finished the book and browsed the back cover. My 12-year old daughter will read it next, and I'm sure she will enjoy it as much as I did. If you buy it as a gift, read it first--you will be blessed.

Lots of Salvation Army history in this story.
It is intended for school aged readers but as an older adult I enjoyed it as well!
