Matilda Wrede (1864-1928) was a young, wealthy member of the Finnish nobility who gave up a life of privilege to take the gospel to prisoners and work on their behalf for social justice. Referred to as a 'friend of prisoners, ' she started visiting prisons in Finland at the age of 20. Mercy at Midnight offers a good story, an inspiring Christian example, and an interesting look at Finland and its culture.
