This book looks at the lives and writings of four women who lived between the 17th and the 19th centuries in England and America. Most notably, throughout the wide range of situations these four women experienced they shared a common perspective. Their contentment and happiness did not depend on good health or a happy family. It came from living for God

In this book you will meet four remarkable women: Margaret Baxter (1639-1681), a rebellious, glamorous teenager who ended up falling in love with and marrying a Puritan minister twice her age. Sarah Edwards (1710-1758) whose spiritual experience during a time of revival has gone down as one of the most profound in church history. Anne Steele (1717-1778) who refused several offers of marriage, preferring to maintain her independence, and who had a significant ministry writing hymns. Frances Ridley Havergal (1836-1879) who was one of the most well known Christians in Victorian England because of her prolific writing of books, hymns, tracts and devotionals. Her hymn 'Take my life and let it be' is one of the most popular of all time.
