    1. Leslie

      You need this book! Lovely story, beautiful art and even better message. I cannot think of another book that expresses more clearly the fact that God has a unique plan for each of us! This book has it all, lovely illustrations, art, Nature, real people and how God is a part of all but does not force Himself upon us. Please buy this book! I’m off to follow the rabbit trail of John Ruskin. . .

      Lilias Trotter's life, artistic skill, devotion, and service are inspiring. The very warm drawings by Ladwig go a long way to add humanity and realism to the writing that seems a bit stiff and didactic.

    3. Samantha Zapata

      A wonderful heart warming story about a little girl named Lily. Lily grows up following Jesus and doing what she loves most, painting. You will see Lily go through trials and decide what God has in store for her. This book is a remarkable story about a young lady who grows into an old women. It's just what she does that makes you keep reading on and on.

      What a lovely picture book introduction to Lilias Trotter, a remarkable artist and missionary. The illustrations are lovely and often hearken back to Lilias' own work. Some of the narrative is a little stilted or incomplete, but otherwise phenomenal picture book introducing kids to the idea of God's supremacy and direction in our lives and how He uses our talents for His glory. Love it.

      Excellent! Our book study group is reading Miriam Huffman Rockness' A Passion for the Impossible, a book about the. life of Lilias Trotter. Lily, the Girl Who Could See is the juvenile non-fiction book about her life. I found the book warm and inviting. A book I would enjoy reading out loud to children who love history and brave people who do extra ordinary things. This book covers her life from birth to her death. Beautifully illustrated and a joy to read.
