An intimate, informed look at the life of Fanny J. Crosby, perhaps the most prolific of all American hymn writers. Having lost her sight in infancy through a doctor's negligence, Fanny went on to compose more than 9,000 hymns, as well as various other songs, cantatas, and lyrical productions. Celebrated in her own day for her gospel hymns, Crosby also very publicly was involved in New York City's rescue missions and with other benevolent efforts. Drawing on primary resources-including thousands of unpublished manuscripts, Blumhofer sorts fact from fiction in the life of this remarkable woman.
