First published in 1958 and set in the early 17th century, this bestselling novel—and follow-up to Katherine—follows Elizabeth Winthrop, a courageous Puritan woman who finds herself at odds with her heritage and surroundings. A real historical figure, Elizabeth married into the family of Governor John Winthrop of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. 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 favored. Defying the government and her family, Elizabeth befriends famous heretic Anne Hutchinson, challenges an army captain, and dares to love as her heart commanded. Through Elizabeth’s three marriages, struggles with her passionate beliefs, and countless rebellions, a powerful tale of fortitude, humiliation, and ultimate triumph shines through.

Indians and witches and cute, super sweet romance, romance and more romance. The romance is so clean it whistles. Forget a spark of p...

This was slow moving for me and I just couldn't seem to engage with the characters. If the book were shorter I may have stuck with it but I have too many titles on my TBR and too little time for pleasure reading to have to struggle with a read. I felt much the same way about DEVIL WATER when I read ...
