Daughters of the Faith: Ordinary Girls Who Lived Extraordinary Lives.

As a teenager growing up in nineteenth-century England, Eliza Shirley was the picture of a proper young lady. She loved crinolines, kid-leather gloves, and her best friend, Beck. But Eliza longed for more than an ordinary, middle-class life. The Hallelujah Lass tells the story of how 16-year-old Eliza traveled from England to pioneer the work of the Salvation Army in the United States.
