Rebecca Janney Timbres Clark: Turned in the Hand of God
Rebecca Clark led a remarkable life that spanned the 20th century. This pamphlet explores one year in that life, when she took the first steps toward a career of service around the world. "The forging of a person's character takes a lifetime," writes Back. "Yet there are periods along the way when outer circumstance and inner forces combine to form a crucible, a time of transformation. Rebecca's year as a volunteer for the AFSC in Poland at the end of WW1 was one of those times. She was 24 years old, unmarried, and just out of nurses training." Based on diaries, letters, and other archival resources, a young woman's quest for faithfulness and meaning comes to life.
