The “novel” part of this historical novel, is that author Donna Gawell thoroughly researched Puritan customs, lifestyle and religious beliefs to put the story in the context of life in a Puritan village, so that we can visualize what our ancestors’ lives might have been like 350 years ago. Dialogue is from that period. The narrative is told in the first person from Mehitabel’s viewpoint, and is entertaining and hard-to-put-down even if you already know the basics of the story.
Gawell has painstakingly dug her (and my) ancestor Mehitabel’s saga out of history, and presented it in a highly readable manner that contains lessons applicable to this day.
I really enjoyed the book.
