These ten girls grew up to become successful women. The two things they have in common is that they all put to good use the talents and gifts they had, and they all believed that God had given them to be used. Helen used her skills as a doctor to bring the truth about Jesus to Africa; Maureen learnt to drive a bus and then she fed the homeless; Anne used her technical skills to keep aircraft in the air; Harriet wrote a book that changed society; Sarah enabled her husband to change a nation; Selina's influence and intelligence helped the persecuted, and preserved the church; Mildred used her adventurous spirit to spread God's word; Katie Ann's compassion rescued babies; Patricia brought Christian fiction to the masses and Mary showed that disability was not a barrier to caring for others.--Back cover.
