The first in a three-part series, this book traces the life of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, from 1821 to 1875. It takes the reader from her birth to the publication of her book, Science and Health. Drawing on letters and private papers, Peel explores the first half of Eddy’s life, her discovery of Christian Science, and the beginnings of her church. 
Released in 2023, this new edition of The Years of Discovery has a refreshed design improving readability and ease of use. All references have been updated and corroborated, providing insight into original sources and conveniently positioned as footnotes rather than endnotes. This edition includes a new foreword, chronological outline and Baker family tree, a section of archival image plates with thorough image credits, an index, and a complete bibliography.
First published between 1966 and 1977, Peel’s groundbreaking three-part biography, Mary Baker Eddy, has proven invaluable to Eddy biographers in the succeeding years. Undertaken with extensive access to Church archives, these carefully researched and documented books provide a strong lens into the life and times of Mary Baker Eddy and the early history of the Church of Christ, Scientist.
