Sue Hull, writing as Suzanne W. Hull, was the author of two non-fiction books, Chaste, Silent & Obedient: English Books for Women 1475-1640 (1982, 1988), and Women According to Men: The World of Tudor-Stuart Women (1996, in Japanese 2003), plus numerous articles and chapters in other publications. A graduate of Swarthmore College, she received a Master of Science in Library Science from the University of Southern California, and was president of several community organizations, including the YWCA of Greater Los Angeles, before becoming the first woman to serve as one of the five principal officers of the Huntington Library, Art Gallery and Botanical Gardens.

Format: Paperback
The of details of everyday life in the 1650's is deliciously described by a truly passionate and knowledgeable expert in the field. Over time, the characters cover a wide geographical range, and the reader is treated to slices of life, status and social custom in many fascinating locations of the era. In a riveting story, Ms. Hull describes the legal status of women and "common knowledge" of the day - which is actually quite shocking in its misunderstanding of basic biology. She portrays how these false foundations of thought shape entire cultures through a very personal and gripping story. In Mara Haviland, Sue Hull has created a lively, thoughtful, and enduring heroine with much to be admired. 'Swounds, she's good!

Format: Kindle Edition
Rich in historical detail that enhances the book, MARA HAVILAND is an engrossing story about a strong woman who faces and conquers enormous odds in her life. I think the thing that both moved and enraged me most while reading this absorbing tale was the absolute rule men held over women at the time. It was only by perseverance and great good luck that Mara finally ended up with the right man. Good Lord! Women today face many inequities, but none to equal those Mara Haviland had to endure (at least not in so-called civilized nations). Almost makes one glad to be living in these days. This is one historical romance novel that isn't based on pure fantasy and is much the better for it.

Format: Paperback
I was hooked on Mara and her spitfire personality from the first page ... and it only got better. Ms. Hull brought her love of England, history and the plight of women during the 1650s alive and tangible in Mara. I found myself reading until almost two in the morning on a couple of occasions, and a few weeks later I re-read it at a much slower pace - savoring it all over again. I strongly recommend this novel for those who love being swept back in time by a consummate storyteller.
