The Shetland isles in the 1820s were full of surprises. Not least for a newly-arrived, not long married missionary like John Lewis. for six years he'd been a pioneer in Newfoundland. As Shetland Methodism grew and grew he found large, eager crowds.
His recently discovered private journal is an eye-opener to a 21st century reader. More down-to-earth than those kept by other island visitors, with vivid accounts of gales and shipwreck and the brand new Sumburgh Lighthouse, it's also pretty blunt but compassionate about cruel poverty in the 1820s.
