Reviews

"Recounts the history of the Protestant deaconess movement in the United States, telling the story of these immigrants and daughters of immigrants whose vocation led them to leave home and perform the works of Christian mercy while living together in community, from 1880 into the twenty-first century. Well-written and carefully researched, this book is an essential read for anyone studying U.S. religion and gender."--Margaret McGuinness, Author of Called to Serve: A History of Nuns in America
