Who is this mystery woman? We had several good guesses. Florence Nightingale, Amy Carmichael, Fanny Crosby, Jane Fonda (no, just kidding about that last one). My friends at our local Christian bookstore guessed her name after I gave them almost every clue in the book (no pun intended)...so they don't win the prize. Finally, Diana Johnson got the right answer. The mystery lady is Frances Ridley Havergal, author, hymnwriter and godly lady from a past generation. One of her better known hymns is "Take My Life And Let It Be". The prize for the winner? I'm not sure yet. More mystery guesses later.
