When William Booth met Catherine Mumford in 1852, it was the start of a story that would change the lives of millions of people across the world. Out of their love sprang a new and radical international Christian movement - The Salvation Army. Throughout their life William and Catherine, when apart, exchanged letters and notes expressing not only their deep love but also a lasting friendship and mutual respect which would survive the challenges of separation, ill health, the struggle of raising a large family, opposition, disappointment and professional uncertainty. The letters, spanning nearly 40 years, reveal both the everyday minutiae of life in Victorian times, and the challenges of being revolutionary Christian thinkers in the second half of the 19th century.

"A brilliant new take on the story of William and Catherine Booth in which their personalities, love for each other and achievements come alive in an unprecedented way. A gem of a book." -- General John Larsson (Rtd), international leader of The Salvation Army 2002-2006 "A fascinating new approach! These intimate letters give deep insights into their spiritual yearnings, their personal faith and their views on Christian ministry and leadership, and shine with their incredible love for each other. This is a 'must' read." -- General Eva Burrows (Rtd), international leader of The Salvation Army 1986-1993 "... the story of the couple's love, and their journey together in creating and managing a noisy, demanding, stress-making, messy baby Salvation Army, sweeps the reader relentlessly along." The Salvationist 20131116 "A touching and sensitive retelling of the lives of an intensely loyal and committed couple whose love for each other and for God endured throughout many challenges against a backdrop of social change over the 40 plus years of their partnership. It also offers insights into daily Victorian life and shows the importance and value of letter writing in an age when instant communication did not exist. The author retells the story in a lively style, weaving in their own correspondence with key background details, bringing together a touching portrait of love, loyalty and commitment, with God firmly at the centre of their lives."
