The Winthrop Woman
2 journalers for this copy...
This book follows Elizabeth Winthrop, a courageous Puritan woman who finds herself at odds with her heritage and surroundings. She married into the family of Governor John Winthrop of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Elizabeth befriends famous heretic Anne Hutchinson, challenges an army captain, and dares to love as her heart commanded. In those times of hardship, famine, and Indian attacks, many believed that the only way to prosper was through the strong, bigoted, and theocratic government that John Winthrop favoured. Elizabeth has thousands of descendants today; many of these, guided by Victorian genealogists and a biased presentation, have a vague feeling that they should be ashamed of her. A member of the Winthrop family, a hundred years ago, even went so far as to mutilate references to her in the original manuscripts. This book shows how her life was significant and praiseworthy.
