" In basic story form, but inspiring nonetheless. " said.

" It is a great book about a young girl in England and is a lil' girly girl! but becomes saved! " said.

" I believe this is a children's book. Interesting story about Eliza Shirley. But wished it had more actual history. I needed to do an internet search to find the real details. " said.

" This is a good motivational story for young people, served as a dramatized slice of American history. The main character began life as an upper middle-class English girl who saw a need and wanted to give more than what was expected of girls of her social class during that period. " said.

"The Hallelujah Lass is an amazing story of how God used a 16 year old young woman to changes the lives of people living in the worst conditions! The story is both exciting and convicting. It made me think of how God can use anyone, no matter their fears, doubts, or upbringing. Eliza Shirley is a beautiful example of a life dedicated to God! I loved how her faith really shone, and hwo God honored it by answering her prayers. It puts prayer in a whole new level!
This story clearly shows her life in a creative and entertaining way! I couldn't put the book down!

"My Rating: 3.9 stars

I used to be addicted to this series when I was a little girl. Really, for a book aimed toward a younger audience, The Hallelujah Lass reads well and serves as a fine example of Christian historical fiction for children. The dialogue is somewhat stinted in parts, and Lawton's attempts to use terms from Eliza Shirley's day (such as bengaline and petticoat tapes) can be bit stuffy, but overall the prose is fresh and enjoyable. The book has a glossary in the back to help with some of the late-1800s words.

I recommend reading some of the later books in the series, too. The Shadow of His Hand is my personal favorite.

" This was a very well written book about Eliza Shirley and the Salvation Army. I had no idea that the start of the Salvation Army in the US was begun by a girl not yet seventeen! Written like a fiction story, this is no dry biography and I didn't want it to be over. I would recommend it to anyone. " said.

" Knocking off a star for women preachers—totally disagree with that. xD Otherwise, amazing book. " said.
