About this title

Synopsis:

From her picture on the British £5 note to the numerous Elizabeth Fry Societies worldwide, Elizabeth Fry (1780-1845) is well known for her work for prison reform. But less well known is how her Quaker Faith inspired this work, leading her to see the light within the impoverished and imprisoned. With Elizabeth Fry: A Quaker Life noted Quaker historian Gil Skidmore has brought together Fry's essential writings—some previously unpublished—from her journals, letters, and published work into a single volume. The result is a rich portrait of the struggles and anxieties behind the public persona of this "Quaker saint."

About the Author:

Gil Skidmore, who is a Quaker, has spent many years researching the lives and writings of early Quakers. Her publications include Turning Inside Out: An Exploration of Spiritual Autobiography (1996), Dear Friends and Sisters: 25 Short Biographies of Quaker Women (1998) and Dear Friends and Brethren: 25 Short Biographies of Quaker Men (2000). She is currently writing the centenary history of Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre in Birmingham and is also working as the research officer for the Location Register for 20th-Century Literary Manuscripts and Letters project at the University of Reading.
