Biography of the sisters of John and Charles Wesley – Emily, Sukey, Hetty, Molly, Nancy, Patty, and Kezzy Wesley.
Much has been written about John and Charles Wesley, but the lives of their seven sisters has often been neglected. This book provides a fascinating insight into the lives of women in the eighteenth century. Much of their story is very sad – a tale of family poverty, broken romances, unhappy marriages, and early loss of children – but it shows also how each of the sisters in her own way sought to rise above circumstances, often turning to their faith in God as a means to endure the endurable.
