Mary Rowlandson and her four children were captured during King Philip’s War in 1675. As a captive, Mary began to question the harsh edicts of her Puritan upbringing and her own identity. This is a phenomenal book that explores the history between the lines of Mary’s official narrative.
If you have read Someone Knows My Name, Caleb’s Crossing, The Widow’s War, or The Winthrop Woman I recommend this read.
