We finally hear the voices of women…an unvarnished truth that turns history on its pointy-hatted head.
—Helen Simonson, author of MAJOR PETTIGREW’S LAST STAND and THE SUMMER BEFORE THE WAR
Part mystery, part love story, beautifully told and meticulously researched…
—Anton DiSclafani, author of THE YONAHLOSSEE RIDING CAMP FOR GIRLS
With gorgeous, period-inflected prose, Nesbit takes us back to the earliest days of New England… I read it at a gallop. What a marvel…
—Laird Hunt, author of IN THE HOUSE IN THE DARK OF THE WOODS
Nesbit . . . cleverly recasts pilgrim history in this deeply enjoyable novel . . .[her] lush prose adds texture to stories of the colony’s women, and her deep immersion in primary sources adds complexity to the historical record.
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
In Nesbit’s hands, history once again comes alive.
Impressive…Together and alone and
each in her separate way, the wives are
left to celebrate or lament…
