At the turn of the 1800s, two women challenge society in the Netherlands. Johanna is a traditional wife eager to both support and challenge her strong-willed husband, the political leader Abraham Kuyper. Henriette is an international traveler, champion of women’s suffrage, and wartime correspondent—among much else! Both mother and daughter risk reproach and defy custom—changing their world for good and for God’s sake.
The Chosen Daughters series highlights the lives of ordinary women who by God’s grace accomplish extraordinary things.
