The Tinker's Daughter: A Story Based on the Life of Mary Bunyan
by Wendy Lawton
John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim's Progress, only mentioned one of his children in his memoirs - Mary. Born blind, her story still intrigues us today. Mary developed a fierce determination for independence despite her disability after years of proving she was not hindered by her blindness. Only when she admits she needs help does she tap into the Source of all strength.
Imagines the search for faith experienced by the ten-year-old blind daughter of John Bunyan, author of "Pilgrim's Progess," during her father's imprisonment for preaching found contrary to the edicts of the Church of England.
