We have both read it about 3 times, all of which brought tears to our eyes. It really is wonderful and one can really sense the terrible poverty this family experienced.
This book really shows this lovely lady as how she truely lived out her life by the Bible. I was really touched by one of her many sayings... True poverty is when you don't have love in your heart!
A really inspirational, touching and moving little book.
Recommended for those who are torn between religious dogma and a growing sense of the unreality of certain types of religious belief.
Irvine's own life story describing his work as a preacher and socialist in USA ('From the Bottom Up') whilst he remained unwanted by most Christian churches, would complement your reading.
I first borrowed the book and after reading it, I purchased it from Amazon as a must for my own little library.
