Book review: American Jezebel

American Jezebel: The Uncommon Life of Anne Hutchinson, the Woman Who Defied the PuritansAmerican Jezebel: The Uncommon Life of Anne Hutchinson, the Woman Who Defied the Puritans by Eve LaPlante
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book and felt the author clarified the extremely complex nuances of Puritanism in England and her colonies. As a Boston tour guide, the understanding I gained from this book will help me a great deal with my tour narratives. The author's documentation of her own footwork in England, Boston, Rhode Island and New York was fascinating. Anne's final chapter and the fate of her children is almost unimaginable in today's world.
