This is a fascinating account of the lives of some women in Taiwan and their spiritual search. In different ways they all live harrowing lives but find hope and support in God and his family at the end. The title of this review says it all really.

Incomprehensible Truth 29 Jan. 2008
By mjD - Published on
Format: Paperback
The weaving of three women's true stories was a captivating read. Each story held me riveted to the many pages until I read the last word of the book. Creating a legend of important details of each life will help the reader keep each woman's story straight.

As stated in the title, "these women seemed beyond hope," BUT.... for a power stronger than addictions and idol worship to reach down into these tangled lives...a must read!

Know that these women live. Their stories are true. The author has lived among them, getting to know them well. The book could be labeled a documentary of hope.

Powerful and Heart-wrenching. 25 Jan. 2008
By David Ullstrom - Published on
Format: Paperback
As someone who has been living and working in Taiwan for almost 20 years I wish this book had been written 20 years ago. It has given me a fresh understanding of the lives and struggles of many people around me. A Taiwanese Canadian friend who recently read Dead Women Walking wrote to me saying, "Reading the stories, I started relating to a lot of the social issues found in Taiwanese families." The stories related in DWW are real stories about real people, presented powerfully with often heart-wrenching honesty. Eye-opening, challenging, and highly recommended!

Ancient to Modern... Taiwan 21 Jan. 2008
By C. KNOWLES - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's an engaging story that shows the challenges of Taiwan when the ancient meets the modern. The traditions of idol worship pervade the stories, leading to addictions, drug abuse, spousal abuse and all sorts of problems. Combine that with a modern, developing society and you have a unreached mission field. This book is well written and will challenge you to consider praying for and evening going to Taiwan. A must read!!!

A great novel as good as Joy Luck Club 7 Feb. 2008
By L. Hwang - Published on
Format: Paperback
Jennifer Su has a journalism degree from the Northwest University. All stories and persons are real. However, Su is such a good author that you may enjoy DWW just like reading a novel. One critic, that she makes all Taiwanese men, count me one, look bad.
Gripping, Riveting, and Eye-Opening 12 Dec. 2013
By J. Tung - Published on
I finished reading the book recently and it was quite eye-opening. Even though I was born in Taiwan – coming to the US at age 9 - I think I was spared of most of these experiences due to loving parents. But the stories of Mei, Ling, and Yufen were compelling descriptions of the idolatry and spiritual warfare that goes on among the working class in Taiwan. The stories were very gripping and made me empathetic to the women who must deal with such horrors, violence and abuse. It is a very human-destroying lifestyle. Yet, there is hope in the form of the gospel that liberates and that is deeply caring. I appreciate your ministry to bring such hope and concern to the working class in Taiwan. And I appreciate you opening a window to give us a look into the the lives of many in Taiwan.
