Born to Serve

Book cover
By: (1857-1946)

Born to Serve by Charles Monroe Sheldon is a thought-provoking novel that challenges readers to consider the true meaning of service and selflessness. The story follows the journey of a young woman named Rachel who has dedicated her life to helping others, even at the expense of her own happiness.

Through Rachel's experiences, the author explores themes of sacrifice, social responsibility, and the impact of one person's actions on the lives of others. Sheldon's writing is poignant and engaging, drawing readers into Rachel's world and encouraging them to reflect on their own beliefs and choices.

While some may find the moral lessons in Born to Serve to be heavy-handed, I believe that Sheldon's message is an important one that is relevant to society today. The novel reminds us of the power of compassion and kindness, and the importance of putting others before ourselves.

Overall, Born to Serve is a compelling read that will leave readers inspired to make a difference in the world around them. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a thought-provoking story that will tug at their heartstrings and challenge their perspective on service and humanity.
