Susie Review

Book Review: 

Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon is a memoir by author Ray Rhodes, Jr. The book has a comprehensive timeline, which includes birthdates, the life of Charles Spurgeon, the life of Susannah Spurgeon, and more interesting bits of information.

Susie was born on January 15, 1832. Although I was already familiar with Charles Hadden Spurgeon, I knew little about him or his wife. I decided to read this book to learn more about them. I found it evident throughout the book that they both loved each other and had a desire to serve and love one another and Christ Jesus. Always putting Christ first.

The thing that especially interested me was the book fund Susie kept for preachers in need of good reading material but couldn’t afford it. As an avid reader I do understand what it means to have good reading material.

I loved the cover and found it very fitting. Also, I would recommend this book to fans of memoirs. However, I did think it was a bit too long for my complete enjoyment.
