Brand New! ; Bobby is a hard-headed egotistical British fighter, who has withdrawn from religion altogether. Hannah tries every way she can think of to change his ways, even opposing his career in pugilism. Daniel jumps at the chance to be heavily involved with John Benbow and Thomas Kington in their new church, seen as a radical move by his mother. Elizabeth supports Daniel, but is Bobby's biggest fan in the boxing world. After all, he is her brother. Robert, a diehard Anglican, opposes a marriage between his son, Bobby, and Hannah. So does Hannah's father, a devoted Methodist. Daniel's mother, a devout Quaker, doesn't want Daniel to marry Elizabeth, Robert's daughter. When Wilford Woodruff, an apostle, arrives in England, he is astonished to hear the Lord's voice direct him to go south. He had been preaching in an area called the Potteries, but the Spirit had prepared a special group of people to hear the gospel - six hundred members of a religious organization called the United Brethren. As Elder Woodruff begins his work there, he not only finds Benbow and Kington, but men and women mostly in their late twenties and early thirties searching for light and truth. Bobby the butcher, Hannah the milkmaid, Daniel the carpenter, and Elizabeth - Bobby's sister - the four main characters of the book, find their lives getting more complicated day by day as they try to escape the boredom of lower middle-class life and staid religions of their parents. ; Light & Truth Series; Vol. 1; 6.25" x 9.25"
