Margaret Lucas (1701-1769) was the youngest of fourteen children, and upon the death of her parents, was taken in and raised by her aunt and uncle. When about sixteen years of age, “upon a strict review” of herself, she concluded that she had “no evidence of the hope of eternal life abiding in her,” and so began to turn her mind to a more serious consideration of eternal things. Not finding peace or satisfaction in the ceremonies and opinions of the national church, she yearned for a true, inward acquaintance with the Spirit of God, and in time began to attend some meetings of the Society of Friends. But it soon became distressingly evident that following the voice of the Good Shepherd would cause her to be ridiculed by the world, and rejected and abused by her own family.

Friends Library Publishing exists to freely share the writings of early members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), believing that no other collection of Christian writings more accurately communicates or powerfully illustrates the soul-transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
