Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon, Wife of Charles H. Spurgeon Ray Rhodes Jr.

Biographies have long been a favorite genre of mine. They permit me to step inside the lives of famous people and get to know them better. It also allows me to learn about their strengths and things I might apply to my life.
I have to say this is an excellent biography, probably the best I have ever read. It isn’t just a big over view of Ms. Spurgeons’ life with her famous husband, but it has real meat to it. Not only did I learn so many wonderful details about her but also her personal challenges, emotions, thoughts and her relationship with Mr. Spurgeon. The book is packed with not only facts but a treasure of correspondences they exchanged which was immense.
I was in awe at all the physical ailments they suffered due to very poor heath, yet they continued to serve God and rely on their great faith. I found that to be such a testimony to me of persevering with a good attitude and not losing sight of your purpose.
I applaud the author all the painstaking research he did to bring this wonderful book to fruition. A beautiful tribute to an amazing woman!
I received this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I have stated are my own.
