The Reputed Wife by Jo Ann Butler : Review and Give Away

Monday, June 3rd, 2013 | Uncategorized | 12 Comments


My thoughts:

This novel is a fascinating combination of history and fiction, with fabulous storytelling filling in the gaps in historical records left by the distance of over three hundred years. Jo Ann Butler makes Colonial New England come to life in a whole new way for me. She breathes life into the long dead, and draws me into the world of Rhode Island in the 1600’s. Not a place I would want to time travel to by any means, but journeying with Jo Ann Butler’s Herod makes for a safe, if an occasionally emotionally harrowing journey. The founders of Rhode Island live and breathe on these pages, and I find myself captivated by a world long gone. A highly recommended read.

I’m honored to host a give away of this fabulous novel for the US. Please leave  a comment here to toss your name into the hat.  You won’t be sorry.

Description of THE REPUTED WIFE:

Herodias Gardner defends religious freedom when she risks the Puritans’ whipping post to protest the torture of Quakers, and seeks to soften a king’s heart. When her friend Mary Dyer defies banishment and faces the gallows in the same quest, what will Herod do?

Herod also challenges convention at home as she seeks to keep personal scandal hidden. Though she has taken George Gardner’s name and borne his children, they have never wed. When the couple is called to court, does it mean that their secret has been revealed?

The Reputed Wife is the second volume in the Scandalous Life series about Herodias Long, the most notorious resident of 17th-century Newport, Rhode Island.
