Additional Information

Do you sometimes feel that you would be able to grow in love for God and others if only your circumstances were different? Maybe you find that the sheer demands of everyday life squeeze out time for God? Perhaps a terrible tragedy has made you doubt the goodness of God? Read this true story to find out how one woman discovered that the most difficult circumstances are to teach us more about his grace; the very busy times are precisely those times when we need God's strength; the worst of tragedies can draw us closer to God.

Elizabeth Prentiss is best known as the author of the popular novel Stepping Heavenward (first published 1869) and the well-loved hymn,More Love to Thee; The difficult things she experienced equipped her to minister to others through her letters, books, and poetry. To grow in love for God was the one great passion of her life: many have testified that her writings continue to inspire them with that same passion. I am grateful to Sharon James for sharing the story of this choice soul with us; a gripping, marvelous, and moving biography.

I first read Elizabeth Prentiss' most famous work, Stepping Heavenward, about 10 years ago during the fall semester of my junior year of college. The main character, Katy, exemplifies a woman of noble character who cares for her family, loves Jesus, and is passionate in her pursuit to be more holy. Not only did this book completely change the way I view womanhood, it has become one of my favorite books over the years as I have married and entered motherhood. Quite eager to learn more about Mrs. Prentiss and the circumstances life afforded her to write such a moving story, I ordered Sharon James' Elizabeth Prentiss `More Love to Thee' without a moment's hesitation. Using Elizabeth's personal letters and other writings, James develops a faithful, detailed picture of Elizabeth Prentiss' life and faith.

Sharon James begins Elizabeth's story at the most logical place: her birth. Born October 26, 1818 in Portland, Maine, Elizabeth was a much desired and cherished daughter of... Read more
I first heard of Elizabeth Prentiss a few years ago when her novel, Stepping Heavenward, was recommended to me. Since that first reading, I have re-read it many times. But, until recently, I did not know much about the author. But, because I enjoyed her writing, I was excited to learn more about her. I originally ordered this book as part of the GirlTalk Blog Book Club, but on the day it arrived, I peeked at the first chapter just to see what I was in for. Instead of reading along wit the group, I ended up starting, and finishing, it within 2 days of it's arrival!

I love reading biographies - especially biographies of men and women who spent a lifetime pursuing the Lord. I love getting a little peek into their world. My husband observed that reading a biography requires that you invest yourself in someone else's life. While I never really thought about it that way before, I think he is absolutely right. When you read the story of someone's life, you get to know... Read more
I also loved this book. Not only did the book challenge my faith it was also an enjoyable read. I would highly recommend this to anyone - but especially a married woman wanting to learn more about living a Godly life in the midst of various challenges (raising children, illness, etc).
