This vivid account of a young girl's pilgrimage to Haifa in 1914 includes delightful pen-portraits of 'Abdu'l-Bahá and the Greatest Holy Leaf.
Born into one of the earliest and most illustrious Bahá'í families, Rúhá Asdáq was the daughter of Ibn-i-Asdáq , one of the four Hands of the Cause of God appointed by Bahá'u'lláh. She was just sixteen years old when she had the unforgettable spiritual experience of going on pilgrimage with her family and meeting 'Abdu'l-Bahá.
Many will be charmed by this vignette, not only for its lively evocation of the rigours of travel earlier this century, but also for the freshness and spiritual eagerness of youth which permeate its pages.
