Called "the most remarkable Quaker couple since George Fox married Margaret Fell," Howard and Anna Brinton exemplified what it meant to be a committed Quaker couple in the twentieth century. Through their leadership among western Friends and at Pendle Hill and elsewhere, and through writing, traveling, and working for peace, while raising four children, they exerted a defining influence on the development of modern, liberal Quakerism. Howard and Anna Brinton: Re-Inventors of Quakerism in the Twentieth Century is the first book length biography of this important duo.
