"You will be captured by Far Above Rubies. I couldn't put it down."
- Dave Gresham, The Navigators Ministry

Her husband-a friend to Mark Twain, mentor to Lewis Carroll, and the man C.S. Lewis called his "master"-was one of the greatest Christian writers of the Victorian era. She was his hidden gem, the bulwark and bastion on which he could lean. Though she was an accomplished musician and singer, an advocate for the poor and neglected, and a published author, she didn't need the spotlight, but was content to be her husband's biggest fan and companion. She bore eleven children and adopted and cared for several others. Enduring hardships few of us will ever experience, this petite woman faced them with courage and strength.

Her name was Louisa MacDonald.
