In the eighteenth century God used men such as John and Charles Wesley, George Whitefield and Jonathan Edwards to bring spiritual revival to both Britain and America - but what about the women in their lives? What was it like to live and work with such dynamic and demanding men?While looking through the lens of history, Clare Heath-Whyte draws out lessons for today, via the honest portraits of these seven unique women.From godliness to bitterness, hostility to courage, the lives of these extraordinary women point us to a faithful God, even in the midst of the most difficult of life's scenarios.

    Fabulous!

    In this fabulous book, Clare Heath–Whyte brings to life seven women from a very different culture, who would normally seem so distant to us. They struggled with lots of the same things we do today including persecution for their faith, jealousy and difficult marriages and any woman could certainly see aspects of her own failings in their equally flawed characters. They also endured far worse things than many of us could ever imagine in the 21st century – horrible, deadly diseases, outliving their own children and travelling in treacherous conditions across the world with missionary husbands. But they continually strived to live godly lives, committed to their families – lives that glorified our faithful God. This is a great read with gripping historical background, the fascinating `other side’ of some well–known stories and thought–provoking Bible–based reflections between each woman’s tale. Not just for `wives’ – it is a perfect resource for one–to ones, study groups or even for personal reading, suitable for any woman over the age of 18. This book will both challenge and encourage you, teaching some valuable lessons along the way. As ordinary Christian women today, we should live extraordinary lives, being thankful for what we have and faithful to a God that will never leave us.

    A very good book we use it for a small group study session and it works well, equally good for an individual read.
