This is a wonderful book - in fact it's a wonderful series. Irene Howat writes with a real warmth and insight. People that you have never met come alive on the page. Christian legends and unsung heroes all become friends you can understand and look up to. In a world where role models of real integrity are few and far between the Lightkeeper's series fills the gap! (Catherine MacKenzie ~ Author and CF4K Editor)

The idea of the book is great. Young or middle age women who have acted in a way that changed the way we see or do things, in a positive way. The vocabulary is easy enough. The reading is clumsy,though. I'm not sure how to explain it better than that.
Another problem is that you need to know some general history for the heroines actions to be seen in their proper light. For instance, a woman going off by herself to a foreign country, with no money or mission support, not speaking the native language, knowing no one, and most of all, being a WOMAN in a country like China where females were not respected at that time (1800s)... If you don't understand these kind of things, you can't really understand the story or appreciate what the missionary or heroine did that was so world changing.
So I have to say, the reading is good for 9 year olds, but they will definitely need some help understanding background information. It wasn't quite what I thought it would be.
The book needs editing. Too much irrelevant information, omission of key details, poor sequencing in the story telling.
After editing, it could be a good book.,
