In this book you will meet four remarkable women: Margaret Baxter, a rebellious, glamorous teenager who ended up falling in love with and marrying a Puritan minister twice her age; Sarah Edwards, whose spiritual experiences during a time of revival has gone down as one of the most profound in church history; Anne Steele, who refused several offers of marriage, preferring to maintain her independence, and who had a signifigant ministry writing hymns; and Frances Ridley Havergal, who was one of the most well-known Christians in Victorian England because of her prolific writing of books, hymns, tracts, and devotionals. Sharon James has written biographies that hold some surprises and a great deal of inspiration. These four women knew that contentment and happiness did not depend on good health, a fulfilling job, or a happy family life. Through a selection of extracts from their writings you too can discover first-hand the heart of God that captivated these women and enabled them to live for his glory, whatever the cost.
