Mrs. Robert E. Lee The Lady of Arlington (Paperback)
|Author: John Perry|
|Mary Custis Lee, granddaughter of Martha Washington and wife of Robert E. Lee, exercised an intense faith that won her husband to Christ, overcame chronic illness, and survived the confiscation of her home.|
From the Publisher:
Many know about her husband, Robert E. Lee, and her great-grandmother, Martha Washington; many have visited the cemetery that now occupies her family estate. But few today know much about Mary Custis Lee herself. Chronically ill and often in excruciating pain, Mary raised seven children, faithfully witnessing to her husband for years before his conversion. She retained her dignity and faith throughout a fruitless, heartbreaking attempt to win compensation for the confiscation of her home and possessions. History is never more powerful than when it provides a role model for enduring hardship with sturdy and radiant faith. Mary Custis Lee is such an example.
