Family stories are meant to be shared. Many of the stories in my family are centered on the life of Harriet Wainwright Evans, daughter of an Episcopal priest and wife of another one. She was born in Iowa before the Civil War. Her birth was the first of her adventures as she was premature and her mother died a few days later. As a child, her Yankee family was trapped in the South when the Civil War broke out. Years later, she arrived in Chicago while the Great Fire was still smoldering. With her father and husband, she lived in a variety of parishes from Connecticut to Montana. She quietly touched the lives of her children, grandchildren, students, and the people in the churches where they served. This book is a gift to her descendants to encourage them to continue to answer God’s call to service.
