When Jane Noble Knight discovered there were Pilgrim Mothers - not just Pilgrim Fathers - who in 1620 set sail on the Mayflower from Plymouth, England, for America, she began her own journey to find out more about the hidden story of these unsung heroines. Along the way she connected with modern-day Pilgrim Mothers, women pioneers living their lives with integrity and courage.
In this second book in The Inspiring Journeys series Jane shares and celebrates the lives of nine Pilgrim Mothers she met on her personal pilgrimage - women founding a New World; women with mighty missions; courageous in the face of adversity; mindful of their families; adding value to their communities; and leaving lasting legacies. What Jane learned is that the greatest journey is the one within - to our home. Whatever route you choose, if you have never travelled that way before, you are a pioneer on your pathway to inner peace, your journey home. You are blazing your trail. Ploughing your furrow. Enjoying your ride.
Calling all Pilgrim Mothers. Come and join us.
'These are the stories of exceptional women, but in a sense aren't we all exceptional, and shouldn't we all celebrate the Pilgrim Mother we carry within ourselves?'
