The Woman Who Saved the Children
Read by Joely Richardson with Clare Mulley
This is an unconventional biography of an unconventional woman. Eglantyne Jebb moved from drawing rooms to war zones, often defying expectation and at times breaking the law. Although not fond of individual children, she founded Save the Children and originated the revolutionary concept of children’s human rights. Clare Mulley brings to life the brilliant, charismatic, passionate and compassionate woman, whose work has saved millions of lives and permanently changed the way the world treats children. Save the Children ambassador Joely Richardson narrates this extraordinary story.

Joely Richardson’s heartfelt narration of the story of redheaded, forget-me-not-blue-eyed Eglantyne Jebb (1876–1928) is published to celebrate the centenary of Save the Children, to whom all author royalties go. This is an immensely rich story that will hopefully inspire parents to instil similarly high ideals in their own privileged young.
