In 1838, a young woman pulled off a heroic rescue saving several survivors from a wrecked merchant ship off the coast of Northumberland in northeast England. Her name was Grace Darling, and she was the daughter of a lighthouse keeper. Grace’s display of courage and strength struck a cord with the Victorian society, thrusting her into the media limelight where she was feted as a heroine. Even today, Grace Darling’s name invokes admiration among people who know her story.
