Summary

Amy Carmichael's (1867-1951) life was one of simple, determined obedience to God, regardless of the consequences. Her service in India is a vivid example of the impact one person who will fear God and nothing else can have. Driven by love, sustained by faith and determination, this young woman from Northern Ireland defied the cruel barriers of India's caste system.

Remarkable woman

This is a remarkable story about a truly remarkable woman. I strongly recommend it. My only criticism would be the frustrating frequent mispronunciation of Keswick throughout first part of the book.

Encouraging book!

What a wonderful testimony of a faithful servant of Christ! I listened to this audio book every time I had dishes to wash or work on the computer, and even on the sabbath as I watched the baby play in the grass! I have been encouraged and challenged by the life of Amy Carmichael! What a life she lives to God!y

Stirs Your Heart

I have heard about Amy Carmichael, but never really knew much about her. I was so blessed and so challenged by her story. Thank you for putting this on Audible.

Amazing woman, great story!

This story begins with the life of Amy Carmichael as a little girl. It ends when her life on this earth closes. What happens in-between is a rich life committed to the service of the God she loved. I came to so love this woman (of whom I knew nothing before this book), that I said I would name a daughter if I had one, after her. The narrator Rebecca Gallagher is outstanding.
