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 lenses of history, Clare Heath-Whyte draws out lessons for today, via the honest portraits of these seven unique women. From godliness to bitterness, hostility and courage, the lives of these extraordinary women point us to a faithful God, even in the mists of the most difficult of life's scenarios.

Clare Heath-Whyte is a busy mum of two teenage children and a Vicar's wife, based in St Albans, England. She is a regular speaker at Christian conferences.Review:
Both men and women, young and old alike, will benefit from this terrific book on some of the great evangelical women of church history. It made me pray for more like them, in zeal and in godliness, and could be one of the instruments God uses to answer that very prayer. --Lee Gatiss, Director of Church Society and Adjunct Lecturer in Church History at WEST
Reading Christian biographies can sometimes leave us feeling inadequate in comparison, but this book in contrast presents seven very real women complete with weaknesses, failures, and imperfections. Although they lived at a very different time and in a very different culture each encounter challenges us to consider our attitudes to our own circumstances today. This is a great introduction not only to these women who served God in the past but also to an important period in church history. It will be a wonderful resource for women s groups as it comes complete with bible studies at the end of each chapter. --Karen Soole, Chairwoman of the Northern Women s Convention
These women have mostly gone unrecognised; and may not have themselves believed that their lives held any significance. Nevertheless, these wives and mothers show us how much influence each of us can have by simply living the life God has given us for Him. A truly worthwhile read. --Alison Wynne, Member of General Synod
