This book is not the story of Pygmalion (a play written nearly 100 years ago in1912, by George Bernard-Shaw, later made in to the popular film and stage show My Fair Lady). In it Professor Henry Higgins makes a bet that he can train a bedraggled Cockney Flower girl to pass for a duchess by teaching her to assume the "veneer of gentility." Professor Higgins is a professor of phonetics and believes that in order for the rough flower girl to pass as a duchess, the first, most important aspect to train in poor Eliza is her speech. (Remember the rhymes “The Rain in Spain stays mainly on the plains. . . in Hertford Hereford and Hampshire, hurricanes hardly happen. . ?”) I say veneer of gentility with emphasis because I want you to note that that is exactly the opposite of what Julie’s Story is. Julie does not have a veneer of a changed life or a veneer of Christianity! She has not learnt to be someone she is not but she has learnt to die daily that Christ might live. The Lord Jesus Christ has turned her life around 180 degrees!
