Daughters of the Faith: Ordinary Girls Who Lived Extraordinary Lives.
As a teenager growing up in nineteenth-century England, Eliza Shirley was the picture of a proper young lady. She loved crinolines, kid-leather gloves, and her best friend, Beck. But Eliza longed for more than an ordinary, middle-class life. The Hallelujah Lass tells the story of how 16-year-old Eliza traveled from England to pioneer the work of the Salvation Army in the United States.
What an exciting and thorough work Wendy Lawton has done in The Hallelujah Lass! We are honored by her careful research and dramatic rendition of Eliza Shirley's story. It will enrich the lives of young girls who read it.
