Thrilling! This book, was comissioned by Evangeline Booth the Commander of the Salvation Army in the US, to tell the story of the SA during World War 1. It recounts the inspiring stories of many Dounut Girls and Salvation "Lassies" who stayed with their 'boys' on the front lines, not for vanity, as many girls would today, but because of the Spirit of God in them, that gave them a pure, and true love for these rough and lonely soldiers. It tells the stories of many brave men as well, but as a young woman, the stories of the strength and dignity of the lassies, and the way that those character traits brought out the finest, noblest qualities in the soldiers thrills my heart and gives me a vision for truly radiant womanhood. And I couldn't write a truly good review, without remarking on the beauty of the writing. I am a long time Grace Livingston Hill fan, and she has not disappointed in this book, though it is more of a biography of the Salvation Army, than the fiction that she normally deals in. Her eye for detail, and her talent for description, often make me forget that I am reading a historical account, instead of an action novel. In all, this is a beautiful, instructive, book that you won't want to miss, and I pray that it touches your heartstrings as it has mine!
