    One thought on “Rachel Saint: A Star in the Jungle”

    1. In this book I heard for the first time something about Rachel Saint, and I never knew she played such an important part in bringing the Waoroni (Auca) Indians of Ecuador to Jesus. She grew up in a poor family and had seven brothers. They all lived in a cottage that was on the estate of her mother's parents. I liked how her mother gave up her wealthy heritage to marry Rachel's father, who was a struggling stain-glass-window designing artist. It's like a fairy tale of a rich girl falling in love [...]

    2. Wow. Just wow. This book was so incredible and inspiring. It really touched my heart. Rachel was one awesome woman! There was one part in this book that made me stop and think and pray.

    3. I really liked this books. It's not often I find a nonfiction book (much less a biography) that I like. Yet, this book is both and I enjoyed it. I read this in 5th grade and if I had to read another biography, I would pick one from this series. I recommend this to those looking for an interesting nonfiction book to read from ages about 10 or 11 up.

    4. Rachel Saint's story was inspiring to me as a Christian woman. Women can go out and do great things for God. In fact, sometimes it's only a woman who can do the job.
