Loved [Heart of a Lioness]. What an incredible legacy. Stirring, inspirational, a challenge and a call to sacrifice for others. This book was a page-turner, beautifully re-creating the life and ministry of Irene Gleeson in northern Uganda. Nicole Partridge has captured the heart of a woman whose love for God and the children who suffered through a brutal civil war surpassed all obstacles. Motivated me to give, to follow, her and to pray. Highly recommended!
This [Heart of a Lioness] is a MUST READ – for anyone who cares about children anywhere – but especially in Uganda where Joseph Kony and the LRA terrorized and destroyed the lives of the Acholi in Northern Uganda. Irene passed away in 2013, but her efforts live on in this beautiful country – incredible well written and emotionally draining. This is a MUST READ.

Heart of a Lioness is a beautifully written, faithfully researched, and accurate recount of the inspiring life of an Australian woman who turned her own tragedy into a story of triumph. The book is packed with descriptive stories that make you feel as though you are right there with Irene.
