The Maxwells of Montreal: Early Years, 1870-1922

Volume 1 (Early Years) covers the years 1870-1922, beginning with the childhood years of May Bolles and Sutherland Maxwell; their youth, their meeting and courtship in Paris; their marriage and their first pilgrimages. It tells the story of the birth of their daughter and the historic visit of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá to their home in Montreal just before World War I. It also describes the early development and training of young Mary, the family’s activities during the war years, the reception of the Tablets of the Divine Plan, and the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá which ended the Heroic Age of the Baha’i Faith.
