Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-- The philosophical convictions by which Anne Hutchinson lived and died are not easy ones to grasp. Despite several attempts, Nichols never succeeds in providing a lucid explanation of the confusing, but critical, difference between a Convenant of Works and a Convenant of Grace, or the religious climate in which such debate flourished. Without this understanding, Hutchinson's thoughts, actions, and subsequent punishment are mystifying. Because only a cursory mention of the woman's early life and education are given, essential information needed to understand the formation of her character as a "Renaissance Woman" is lost. By failing to present a clear historical context to explain the significance of excommunication and banishment in 17th-century New England, the gravity of Hutchinson's punishment seems incomprehensible. Little additional amplification is found in the chapter notes or uninspired illustrations. Children reading this book may well be left with many unanswered and bothersome questions. Elizabeth Ilgen Fritz's Anne Hutchinson (Chelsea, 1991) and Dennis B. Fradin's Anne Hutchinson (Enslow, 1990), for younger audiences, give a more complete picture of the woman and have the added value of chronologies and indexes. --Anita Palladino, Finkelstein Memorial Library, Spring Valley, NY
