Frances Ridley Havergal: A Poet for the King is not a missionary biography or the heart-wrenching account of the life and death of a martyr. This famous English hymn writer had a surprisingly ordinary life. This is the story of a young woman who came to know and love God so deeply that His glory spilled out into the everyday moments of her life and into the poetry she wrote. Eileen M. Berry tells her story in free verse as Havergal might have told it, based on the journals and letters she left behind.
