Life at 400 Beacon Street by Heather Vogel Frederick
Have you ever wondered what it was like to work for Mary Baker Eddy? This new book from Longyear Museum Press explores this question, introducing nearly two dozen men and women who served at Mrs. Eddy’s home in Chestnut Hill between 1908 and 1910.
From the secretaries and metaphysical workers to the housekeepers, cooks, gardeners, and more, you’ll learn about the healings that brought these individuals to Christian Science, about their contributions to the movement both before and after their time of service, and about how their duties fit within the household’s daily routine. Each chapter also shares some of the priceless instruction that Mary Baker Eddy gave to her “family,” as she called these stalwart pioneers, whose dedication, faithfulness, and tireless efforts helped support the important work she completed during the crowning years of her mission to mankind.
Abundantly illustrated with both historic images and full-color photographs.
Heather Vogel Frederick is co-author with Isabel Ferguson of A World More Bright: The Life of Mary Baker Eddy, a recent biography from The Christian Science Publishing Society. She currently works full-time at Longyear Museum, where she heads up the Research and Publications Team.
