    Summary: Florence Young had a calling to be a missionary. With a lot of loss in her life, and many trials, that calling came to be. What I liked: Normally when I'm reading nonfiction, it just states facts kind of like bullet notes. The thing about this book, is that it was told more in the form of a story. That's what really pulled it together. Also, I love her life story. It is so encouraging, and it shows you how Florence got through such rough times stronger than ever. Her faith in God is amazi Summary: Florence Young had a calling to be a missionary. With a lot of loss in her life, and many trials, that calling came to be.

RIP Florence Young. What I didn't like: Even though it's a biography, I feel like subjects fly by fast. I think that if stuff was gone over just a wee bit more, then it would have been a little better. Although, I do really like the fact that it's a short book and can be read in one sitting. That makes my confidence in reading even higher! Overall: I would most definitely recommend this book. If you're looking for a quick, nice read, look no further.

    I usually find it easy to read this series but this book was hard to read! First half was boring and monotonous but second half was spellbinding! But I’m glad I read it though! The good: I loved Florence Young. She was just like me in personality! I was inspired by her faithfulness in being a missionary to the aboriginal people of Australia, New Zealand , and the Solomon Islands! The not so good: first half=boring, monotonous and annoying due to her dysfunctional parents, illness, constant movin I usually find it easy to read this series but this book was hard to read!

    Read aloud to my children. I loved this spunky woman who moved into a need and began an amazing ministry that brought 7,000 people to Christ. Because our lives are so much more insulated now, I particularly was touched how constant severe hardships did not discourage her from the work of God. Florence Young was immovable because she knew she served a steadfast, loving God. Her life was spent in obscure beauty.

    This was a hard-to-get-into story. A lot of details that were probably necessary but it was just not as interesting as some other Christian Hero stories... I used it as a chance to talk about how mission work is not all glamorous adventure. Sometimes it’s just years and years and years of toiling.

    Very informative and interesting. Caution for younger readers that there are some graphic details about the murder of missionaries and some cannibalistic incidents particularly in the last few chapters. If reading aloud I would skip the gorey details and simply state “so and so was killed”

    Interesting biography of Florence Young for young people. I really enjoyed reading about the Kanakas and particularly how their lives - and then their entire culture (violence, paybacks, cannibalism) changed as a result of the gospel.

    While the life and mission of Florence Young was great, the presentation in this book was boring. It would probably be better to just read her autobiography, Pearls From the Pacific, which is the only book they listed in their bibliography. I haven't read her autobiography, but I would hope it is better than this. While the life and mission of Florence Young was great, the presentation in this book was boring.
