Religious Figures  

Betsy felt her heart lurch. Just over a mile from where she stood, women and children existed in conditions more deplorable than the slums she routinely visited. Why hadn’t she investigated this before? Without a second thought, she said, “Something must be done immediately for those poor, suffering children. I will go to them tomorrow.” Exposed to the horrendous living conditions of women prisoners and their children, Elizabeth Fry pledged to improve the lives of society’s most desperate people – something no one else dared to do. Telling doubters, “If I don’t, who will?” Betsy became one of England’s greatest reformers and one of the 19th century’s most beloved people. Guided by her Quaker values, she led efforts in education and literacy, prison reform, and – together with figures such as William Wilberforce and Thomas Fowell Buxton – the abolition of slavery. Elizabeth Fry (1780-1845) insisted on justice and forever changed the way human beings treat one another. Heroes of History is a unique biography series that brings the shaping of history to life with the remarkable true stories of fascinating men and women who changed the course of history. The stories of Heroes of History are told in an engaging narrative format, where related history, geography, government, and science topics come to life and make a lasting impression. This is a premier biography line for the entire family.

“One of my favorite apps. I drive alot and Audible lets me get through a ton of books. They are great about returning books I don’t like. I also love that I can put it on any device and pick up right where I left off.”

“Just wonderful, I never had time to read except in the 10 minutes before bed, by then I’m already falling asleep and have to re-read the next night as it didn’t retain. Now I can listen to books while travelling, doing the housework, getting ready for work each morning.
