This book explores the life and works of the prophetess and mystic, Jane Leade (1624-1704), and opens a fascinating window into the world of a remarkable woman living in a remarkable age. Born in Norfolk into a gentry family, she enjoyed a comfortable childhood, married a distant cousin, who was a merchant, and had four children. However, she found herself totally destitute in London when he died, his fortune having been lost abroad. As a widow, she proclaimed herself to be a Bride of Christ, and eventually became a prolific author and a respected blind, elderly leader of a religious group known as the Philadelphian Society.
