    This biography explores the life of Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Harriet grew up in a household where girls were taught not to speak in public, yet her brothers were encouraged to become preachers and speak their minds. Her parents couldn't stop Harriet from speaking out against the institution of slavery through written words though, and Harriet published the above-noted novel, which powerfully drew attention to the evils of slavery. Jean Fritz artfully explores this influential woman's childhood, family, and life amidst the era and social movements of the time through 144 pages of light, engaging text and black and white photographs.

    Because of the popular movie Chariots of Fire, many people know about Eric Liddell, who ran for the gold in the 1924 Olympics. Sadly, most never find out about the rest of his life. This biography gives a very thorough look at this man's life, from his childhood as a missionary kid in China, his love for a high-school girl who later became his wife, his college years and love of sport, his Olympic journey, his return to China as a Christian missionary despite his popularity in the athletic world, his experiences in WWII, to his early death in a Japanese internment camp. Written by David McCasland, the biography is a captivating read and gives valuable insights into a life filled with integrity and sacrifice. 334 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
