7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By grm1984 on October 1, 2008
Format: Paperback
This very poorly written book is littered with embarrassing grammatical errors and outlandish factual inaccuracies. Often the author comes across and being ill-informed and downright dumb. Much of the "information" is either speculated or completely fabricated and untrue. Moreover, the book's feminist perspective is predictable and dated. This is a work of (bad) historical fiction, not a reputable work of non-fiction. Much like its subject, it ought to be excommunicated and exiled from bookstores and library shelves alike. It comes as no surprise that the same woman responsible for this unfortunate book also edited "Conquer AIDS Now: With Natural Treatment - A Non Drug Approach," in which it is suggested that patients with AIDS eat healthier diets, thump their chests like Tarzan, and expose their genitalia to the sunlight in an effort to combat the virus. Who is this woman? And how was she ever published?

This book gives an in-depth look at the life and times of this extraordinary woman. It helps us better understand how difficult life was like for the early American colonists, especially women. It also reveals how those early colonial leaders manipulated scripture to keep control over the people. When Anne Hutchinson taught the people that salvation is based on God's grace and forgiveness, and not on one's holiness and law-keeping, those early leaders feared that her teaching would lead to lawlessness, and they quickly moved to silence her and discredit her. Here is the story of one strong woman standing up to her oppressors. Her greatest desire seemed to be to see the people freed from the fear and oppression that came from a wrong teaching of God's word. This book shows us that the early leaders from the Massachusetts Bay Colony did not truly believe in freedom of speech, religious liberty, or the rights of women.

My only complaint is that the language the author uses is a bit archaic - so it's not the easiest of reads.
