Review: Light Keepers: Ten Girls Who Changed the World

User Review  - ijlmg - Christianbook.com

Irene Howat lives in Scotland so there is some spelling differences. Like colour vs. color and realised vs. realized. The book is great and there are no spelling errors that I have found. Read full review

This is a good product for a biblestudy

Although the book is good for introducing young ladies to these 10 missionaries, I was surprised at the typos in the book. Words like realized were spelled realised. If you can overlook the typos, it is a good book. Read full review
