Book Description

This is the story of a girl from one of the richest families of England who followed Jesus with her whole heart from her teenage. Later as a mother of eleven children, she visited the Newgate prison (the biggest prison in London) almost every day and read the Bible to prisoners. She saw worth in the most degraded and fallen women and gave them a helping hand to know Jesus the savior of all men. She personally helped thousands of prisoners to find hope, meaning and a new life in CHRIST. She founded the Woman’s Prison Association which grew into thousands of branches worldwide providing a platform for thousands of women to voluntarily minister to prisoners. When she began her work prison reforms had not taken place. She played a key role in reforming prisons and making bringing laws to treat prisoners with dignity and respect. She personally demonstrated how prisoners can be successfully rehabilitated. She also played a key role in the abolition of Capital punishment for crimes less than murder. She intervened on behalf of thousands of poor women convicts who were transported to Australia. In a period of three decades, she and her army of volunteers met nearly 12,000 of the 25,000 young poor women convicts who were transported to Australia. Her name is Elizabeth Fry the daughter of one of the founders of Barclays bank (One of the biggest banks in the world).

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable woman 8 Nov. 2013

This is a very easy to read short biography of the astonishing lady who has adorned our £5 notes for several years. All too few people know the extraordinary part she played in reforming our prisons in the 19th century, and the disciplined faith which inspired her. This is an excellent short introduction to a woman who deserves to be remembered and celebrated.

Very small book with not much information regarding her family. I was always told by my Mother that we are in fact elated to Elizabeth Fry, I though I may glean some knowledge from a biography.
