It is well with my soul: The extraordinary life of a 106-year-old woman

By Ella Mae Cheeks Johnson with Patricia Mulcahy

Reviewed on: 07 2011 | Category: Biography

Ella Mae Cheeks Johnson is an inspirational, dynamic, and one-of-a-kind woman whose ordinary life has been nothing less than extraordinary throughout the course of her 106 years. Ella Mae is the child of former slaves who has experienced the best and worst of the past century - from the Jim Crow era to the 2009 presidential inauguration, which she memorably attended.

Through it all, she has endured – and thrived – by adhering to the example of the Good Samaritan: the belief that compassion is the key to the good life and offering help without expecting payback brings its own rewards.
