My mother was the youngest daughter of a family of 17 children. She called herself "fourth from the
bottom" having three younger brothers. One summer while visiting one of the older sisters, my
Aunt Bessie, I was given a copy of a poem, "Little Blossom - A Temperance Recitation". Aunt Bessie
related to me that their mother had clipped from a magazine or newspaper. She had folded it and stored it
in a penny match box. She told me that all the sisters had recited it in school. I kept it in the box until
I became an adult and carefully put it on wood and sealed it to save it. I has always had a special place in our home. Before Mom died, i asked her if she remembered reciting it in school. She said that she did not do that and it must have been just the older sisters that did. Kate's life reminded so much my memories of this poem. Over the years, I have read it many times, not without tears.
I hope you will continue writing about other women who have dedicated their lives to bravely win for us so many
of the freedoms women enjoy today. All women today need to hear their stories.
Enjoyable and engaging.

It's lessons about midwifery from the past were most interesting and informative. It also challenged my perspectives about prostitution as I realise more and more young girls are being thrust out into the world unprotected due to a break down in family relationships. Hopefully this book will challenge Christian communities to do more for these girls.
In a world that now has the largest number of slaves ever, including those who are often hidden in places of prostitution in Western countries, we need more Dr Kates today, who are willing to reach out to the trapped girls and fight on their behalf. But how sad would she be to know the battle still continues, that girls are still being enslaved and society still mainly turns a blind eye, claiming the girls choose the life despite the evidence that suggests large percentage of sex workers in Western countries are slaves, let alone elsewhere.
