This book weaves together a colorful tapestry of reminiscences by 22 individuals who interacted with Mary Baker Eddy- some for a few days, others for years.
Readers will find in these pages a more intimate portrait of Eddy than a typical biography could provide, including glimpses into her daily routines and relationships, a behind-the-scenes look at the Leader of Christian Science, and striking examples of the spiritual strength and personal sacrifice underpinning this remarkable woman's accomplishments.
Each voice in this volume is unique, intriguing, and inspiring. The book's primary objective is to shed light on Eddy and her life, but readers will enjoy getting to know the authors as well- interesting and lively figures in their own right.ForewardIntroductionA Friendship Through Two Generations, Mary Godfrey ParkerA Worker in the Massachusetts Metaphysical College, Julia S.
