The Diary of Juliet Thompson
This diary is the day by day account which Juliet Thompson, one of the early Bahá’ís of New York, kept of her many hours with ‘Abdu’l-Bahá–first on pilgrimage to “Akká in 1909, then in Europe in 1911, and finally in America in 1912.
“Juliet is one of my favorites,” ‘Abdu’l-Bahá had said. His fatherly love for her – encouraging, comforting, guiding, warning, sometimes even chastising – is recorded, page by page. Juliet’s love for ‘Abdu’l-Bahá is also vividly kept here. To this divine love she devoted her life, becoming an immortal teacher of the Cause, serving faithfully until her death in 1956.
This inspirational and surprisingly relatable story is a must read for every Baha’i seeking to understand the early believers’ relationship with Abdu’l-Baha, and the qualities we all possess to help us in our effort to advance the Baha’i World Order.
