John Bunyan, the author of Pilgim's Progress, mentions only one of his six children in his memoirs: Mary. Born blind in 17thc England, she held a special place in her father's heart. When Mr. Bunyan is arrested for unlawful preaching, young Mary travels the streets of Bedford each day, bringing soup to the prison. She resolves to prove she is independent and not hindered by her blindness. Only when she realizes she needs help does she turn to the Lord, the source of all strength.

This was a touching story of a family in 17th century England. Mary is a determined girl who just needs to learn to accept that sometimes help from others can be a good thing, and that she needs to rely on God to get her through hard times, not her own strength. I would definitely recommend anyone reading this or any of the other Daughters of the Faith books by Wendy Lawton.
