A sparkling new account of the life of William and Catherine Booth. When William and Catherine met it was the start of a love story that would change the lives of millions. Out of their love and common concern for the poor and marginalized sprang the radical international Christian movement, The Salvation Army. This love story is told through the letters they wrote to each other. Intimate and revealing, they express not only their deep love but also their lasting friendship which survived the challenges of separation, ill health, the struggle of raising a large family, opposition, disappointment and professional uncertainty. Spanning nearly forty years, their letters reveal the everyday minutiae of life in Victorian England, as well as the challenges of being radical Christian thinkers in the 19th century.
