Margaret Fell, “Mother of Quakerism,” convinced by George Fox in 1652. But who was Margaret Fell? Little is known about her life before that date. This book began as an attempt to find out not who she was, but who she might have been. It is story, rather than history. In recreating another woman’s life, Judith Hayden began to reflect on her own. Her journey through the seventeenth century became a journey through two lives. The story is about two women’s search for God.
