An intelligent, strong-willed woman, Susanna Wesley suffered much in a male-dominated world while she prepared her children to succeed in it.
Her fiery, independent spirit is evident as Arnold Dallimore sets the mother of Methodism within her culture and time in England. Though Samuel Wesley figures prominently in his wife's story, as do John, Charles, and the other children, the story remains fixed on Susanna.
Excerpts from Susanna Wesley's letters and writings of her husband and children are included.

Speculation with a little history....
While I appreciate the wide variety of sources from which this author draws, I think the amount of liberty taken by speculation within the pages of this book yield it more towards fiction that biographical in nature. It gives a good overview of the circumstances surrounding Susanna Wesley’s life and family. However, some of the conclusions drawn are erroneous.
