Review quote

"If you like this, you'll love these: Take a look at the Torchbearer series, in particular - Danger on the Hill - the story of Margaret Wilson. A story of an eighteen year old girl's struggle with persecution. Her story lives on and it tells us to stand firm too." Catherine Mackenzie(Author and CF4K Editor) If you like this, you'll love these: Take a look at the Torchbearer series, in particular - Danger on the Hill - the story of Margaret Wilson. A story of an eighteen year old girl's struggle with persecution. Her story lives on and it tells us to stand firm too. Catherine MacKenzie (Author and CF4K Editor) This book is a mixture of exciting, sad and challenging testimonies. I enjoyed reading about Blandina, Perpetua, Lady Jane Grey, Anna Askew, Lysken Dirks, Marian Harvey, Margaret Wilson, Judith Werghburg, Betty Stam and Esther John. These women loved their saviour and lived their lives which emulated Christ in many practical ways. I found this challenging because it made me think that I should stand out and tell people about God and not to have the fear of man but rather to have the first fear of man but rather to have first the fear of God. Life can be hard being a Christian at home or school, but with the Lord's strength and grace he enables us to shine forth as his light. I recommend this book to everyone, including Mums & Dads.--Evangelical Presbyterian One little girl read these stories and wondered about how these girls could be so brave! That is what hits you in the face when you read about these characters - their courage, their uncompromising stance for God's truth and the God who gave them that truth in the first place. At a time when young christians around the world know what real persecution is, help your child to understand that not compromising is something that they can do.Irene Howat writes with a real warmth and insight. 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 If you like this, you'll love these: Take a look at the Torchbearer series, in particular - Danger on the Hill - the story of Margaret Wilson.
