THE WINTHROP WOMAN
. . . shocked the bigoted colonists by daring to love one man while married to another. . . publicly defended an outcast woman accused of heresy . . . challenged a ruthless captain bent on the massacre of her friends, the Siwanot Indians. Set against the background of the oppressive theocratic government of the Massachusetts Bay and Connecticut colonies in the 1630s, The Winthrop Woman is a towering novel of love and passion, violence and madness--a major triumph by the famous author of Dragonwyck, My Theodosia, and The Tourquoise.
