John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim's Progress, only mentioned one of his children in his memoirs: Mary. Born blind in 17th-century England, she held a special place in her Father's heart.
When Mr. Bunyan was arrested for unlawful preaching, young Mary travels the streets of Bedford each day, bringing soup to the prison. She resolves to prove she is independent and not hindered by her blindness. Only when she realizes she needs help does she turn to the Lord, the Source of all strength.
"Warm and inspiring, The Tinker's Daughter abounds with word pictures that bring meaning to the world of blind Mary Bunyan. Sure to touch a family's heart!"
— Lois Walfrid Johnson, author, Adventures of the Northwoods mysteries and Freedom Seekers series

Wendy Lawton has a gift for transporting her readers back in time and making that time so real. One cannot help but admire Mary Bunyan, who, though blind, is able to accomplish so much. What a wonderful example of love, sometimes tough love, in action. Mary's life is her testimony, and this powerfully written story makes one want to be like her.
