She experienced the poverty of rural Ireland and the ceremony of the royal court in London.Beyond this, Lady Blomfield was one of the most socially distinguished adherents of the Baháí Faith, moving in social circles that included royalty, members of government and the celebrities of the day. She was the gracious and generous hostess to Abdul-Bahá on His historic visits to London in 1911 and 1912-13 and was a chronicler of Baháí history in her book The Chosen Highway.Above all, she was a tireless advocate of the Baháí Faiths spiritual and social teachings- a defender of her persecuted co religionists in Iran- a champion of the rights of women, children, prisoners and animals- and an ardent promoter of peace and interreligious understanding.Robert Weinbergs detailed research has yielded a fascinating insight into the life of Lady Blomfield, her family and her circle, and into the life of Abdul-Bahá as it touched the lives of the British Baháís.

Punctuated by glimpses into London society and the rapidly developing Bahá í community, Weinbergs book provides compelling grounds for Lady Blomfields inclusion in the galaxy of unforgettable women who became the principal exponents of the Baháí message on both sides of the Atlantic .
