    Amy Carmichael was born in N. Ireland to a wealthy family in the mid 1800's. Her family lived very humbly despite their wealth and hard times hit and a financial struggle resulted. The stress of the enterprise resulted in a heart attack that killed Amy's father. Amy was the oldest but in her early teens, she was responsible for a half-dozen siblings. Her mother, Amy and several sisters went to England to live with some siblings remaining in Ireland and at least one brother going to America when Amy Carmichael was born in N. Ireland to a wealthy family in the mid 1800's. Her family lived very humbly despite their wealth and hard times hit and a financial struggle resulted. The stress of the enterprise resulted in a heart attack that killed Amy's father. Amy was the oldest but in her early teens, she was responsible for a half-dozen siblings. Her mother, Amy and several sisters went to England to live with some siblings remaining in Ireland and at least one brother going to America when he came of age. Amy took a job working for Robert Wilson as his personal assistant. Amy had been very involved in her spiritual life back in Ireland even starting a Sunday program for the poor children that became quite popular. She and Mr. Wilson shared their spiritual views and encouraged one another. Amy felt called to missionary work at a young age and in her early 20's went to Japan. Soon she was called to China but shortly after her arrival, tensions between Japan and China and Britain? made her stay dangerous. She had health issues that seemed to worsen in cold weather so she was sent to the S. of India (Still full of colonialists). Amy flourished in India, people always sensed her kindness and soon it was apparent in her new homeland. Not long after coming to the mission station in a place east of the Ghats, an older, very attractive woman visited Amy and they talked for hours. It wasn't until the woman left, that one of the other missionaries told her that she was talking to a temple prostitute (it didn't shock Amy, she was not one to judge). She was appalled to learn that many baby girls were given as gifts to a temple, so that the god would show the family favor. Girls were not held in esteem because they required a dowry that many parents found onerous, so giving their daughter away was not a tough decision for many. Amy was appalled by the caste system and immediately demonstrated that attitude by wearing white cloth, a color (lack thereof) of the untouchables as a way of communicating that she did not esteem people based on the caste system. Some adult temple prostitutes ran away. One story was a young girl around 12 (marriageable) she wanted to be a Christian but by choosing Christianity she would be dishonoring her family and they would kill her. Amy helped her escape to another place, thereby she was safe and her community didn't know she had dishonored her family. Sometimes the parents could afford an extra mouth to feed so giving a girl to be raised in a temple insured that she would be fed and cared for even though she would be used for a very young girl sought solace because she was raised as a temple prostitute. Soon people were giving their young daughters to Amy to raise and she started an orphanage in a nearby area of Dohnavr in the State of Tamil Nadu India. Amy sent letters to her friends and those interested in her work, this correspondence covers the 50 years of service in India; she also wrote 13 other books. While in ministry, she never once asked for money. She prayed and waited until the money arrived and it always arrived, when needed and in the amount she needed. She raised many children and people started bringing her boys as well so she had a separate home for them on the property. She built a prayer house and then a Hospital. She built a dispensary at a town nearby for basic medical care. When she was 63 she had gone with some of her workers (some were women who had been raised in her orphanage and remained loyal) to see a home they wanted to use, it was considered haunted so though the people in the region didn't care for Christians, the owner was motivated to rent it out, she fell in a hole (it was night time). She had a severe break in her leg and a twisted ankle and had to be taken to the hospital. She never recovered though she had a nice healing of her leg and ankle. Doctors realized that something occurred within her spine and she was bedridden for nearly 20 more years. She still maintained close to those running the various services and changed many lives for the better. She died in her early 80's and said that she wanted no coffin or stone marker. So, her friends put a birdbath to mark her remains as she loved the birds of that area so much that she would let them fly into her room despite the mess. This book was written on the fourth grade reading level so it can be enjoyed by people, young and old.

    Not a bad little intro biography for kids. I read this to my children to help introduce them to missions which I think the book accomplishes. It does a decent job of showing not only the joyful moments of Amy’s missionary work but also the trials, tribulations, and deep sorrows she had to endure.

This book is very well written, starting in Amy's childhood all the way to her death. The author didn't have much dialogue in it to my disappointment. As I stopped after a few chapters, it turned the gears in my mind about questions concerning God. Even what the world thinks of us- should we care? Even though boys might consider this a 'girly book', I would recommend this book to everyone of all ages.

    This is a wonderful book. Amy Carmichael is a wonderful example to all women of what true faith looks like. I read this story with my 12 year old and she loved her also and talks about her like she is an old friend. Recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

    This book is full of amazing, true miracles that happened in the life of Amy Carmichael. An Irish woman goes to India to be like a mother to many, many people. One of the things to remember from this book is even when times are hard, or sad, or things don't go your way, God is in control. He has the power to change lives and do the impossible!

It stuns me in a way (but also is not really surprising at all) what Amy had to go through when she first arrived in India as a missionary -- that even the other Christians, the English, would still abide by England's Victorian practices, drinking tea in the highest comfort with Indian servants and adhering to the caste system themselves. Unbelievable, and yet this is exactly what happens in our world today, living under the standards of Man instead of seeing all people as God sees them. Also tragic what people living in India had to live with in regards to the strict caste system and still have to live with in regards to societal ideas and the fact that girls are nearly worthless. It's heartbreaking. This book gave me an even bigger heart for India, a place that has always been in the forefront for me. All followers of Christ should read stories like this lest we limit God on what He is capable of in our lives.

    I loved Amy Carmichael’s story! I knew she was from Ireland, but hearing the different little tidbits of her early life—first, the family went from a life of upper-class richness to being too poor to go to finishing school. Then she had a call to do work for the Lord, and began working with the “shawlies”—young women who worked long hours in the factories. Later, she went for a brief stint of missionary work in Japan, and then became too sick to continue there. After that, she had to return to E I loved Amy Carmichael’s story! I knew she was from Ireland, but hearing the different little tidbits of her early life—first, the family went from a life of upper-class richness to being too poor to go to finishing school. Then she had a call to do work for the Lord, and began working with the “shawlies”—young women who worked long hours in the factories. Later, she went for a brief stint of missionary work in Japan, and then became too sick to continue there. After that, she had to return to England to help an old friend, and had to recuperate from sickness herself. I never realized before how much sickness hindered her work—but despite that disability, she had an amazing drive and a beautiful vision to bless all those she met with Jesus’ love. There was a lot about her early life in this book, which I enjoyed immensely—often, we tend to hear the most about her time in India, and little about the rest of her life. I hadn’t realized before that she spent a while working in Japan before eventually being called to India, so that—along with the legacy she led and left behind her—was very encouraging for me. Highly recommend this biography.

    I reluctantly started to read this book as part of school... and found myself enjoying it from time to time. I had heard of Amy Carmichael before, but had never really went into her story. It was interesting to be sure, lovely too, :) The beginning of this book had a slow start, but did liven up at some point. Amy's times in India were pretty amazing, the children she took in so sweet, even with their sad stories! I'm happy I read this book after all, :) A great testimony.

It just occurred to me that maybe they do that in order to give kids more of a portrayal of the Christian hero as a younger person. The only word of warning for kids reading this book is that it contained the mature ideas of very young girls being forcibly married early or much worse, being prostitutes in the Hindu temples. For the few times that it used the word "prostitute," I substituted the word "slave."

    My overall impression is that this book is wonderful. Amy Carmichael is a stubborn and opiniated women. Her stubbornness causes her to go to India to serve the Lord and be a missionary. Originally, Amy worked with the shawlies, Irish women who had come to England to escape poverty but they only found more of it, but then she gets really sick. When she eventually gets better, she decides to be a missionary to China, but the doctor says she was medically unfit and his word was final.

In Japan, she works as a missionary, but she soon gets Japanese Head (an illness in Japan) and the only cure is to leave Japan. Finally, some time later, she goes to India and she works there with the Indian people for the rest of her life. Most people probably would already give up if they got rejected, but Amy did not. That is one way I like this book. Here is the rest of my book report: https://meimakes.blogspot.com/2020/08....

    Another inspiring story of a woman who followed the call of God on her life. Her ministry to the needy in China and India was shared. Although geared to the younger generation, it is a good book for adults too. It is a reminder of what it means as a believer to follow hard after God--driven by love, sustained by faith and determination, the impact God had on others' lives through this servant is inspirational.

    As with all of Janet and Geoff Benge's Christian Heroes Then and Now series, this is an expert telling of the life and ministry of one of Christianity's greatest missionaries. On par with Mother Teresa, Amy spent her adult life in India rescuing and giving home to hundreds of unwanted girls (and later boys). The books in this series are written to perfectly appeal to such a wide age range from as young as five (if read aloud) all the way to adult. I highly recommend these missionary biographies.

    I have read a few books on the life of Amy Carmichael and this one contained information that I had not read previously. The missionary's heart is so clear in Amy's life while still in Ireland with all the work she did for the shawlies. I never realized that she started trying to go on the foreign mission field first in China the in Japan and it was poor health that brought her first to India.

She was a Godsend to many girls and for history to look at what women went through. And she had the gift of listening to God voice and going where he asks her to go or do.shes brave to go to a place where it seems impossible to make a difference.she had the faith to do stuff even if it meant losing her own life. Trust and faith is what I describe Amy carminchael. flag Like  · see review Feb 13, 2017 Chan-joo Moon rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition Powerful testimony of a woman who dedicated her life to serving the people of India. She went through severe hardships but experienced the power of God and was a blessing to those around her. Four stars because the writing seems to be for a relatively young audience. I felt like I wanted something with more depth. flag Like  · see review May 10, 2017 Amy rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition Great read, a story of a beautiful faith-filled lifeI've wanted to read this book for a long time now and finally have. It's a beautiful story of a faith-filled life! Oh that we would have more Amy Carmichael in the world today! I recommend this book for anyone but particularly for young people.
