There is a game on the rabck forum called Wish List Tag. Usually, you grant a book from someone's wish list and then someone grants a wish from yours. Some people have asked for it to be a "pay it forward" tag. For the person I was tagging, I choose to grant you a book on your list. We would love to have you come and play the game with us. Please check it out!

Married for twenty years to Edward Berry, Lyddie is used to the trials of being a whaler's wife in the Cape Cod village of Satucket, Massachusetts—running their house herself during her husband's long absences at sea, living with the daily uncertainty that Edward will simply not return. And when her worst fear is realized, she finds herself doubly cursed. She is overwhelmed by grief, and her property and rights are now legally in the hands of her nearest male relative: her daughter's overbearing husband, whom Lyddie cannot abide. Lyddie decides to challenge both law and custom for control of her destiny, but she soon discovers the price of her bold "war" for personal freedom to be heartbreakingly dear.

Includes the fascinating "story behind the story" of The Widow's War.

I enjoyed reading this story and the author's notes behind the story. I hope that I can one day take a trip to Cape Cod and see for myself where so much of our nation's history began.

Sending off to a birthday girl.
