Praise

"[Ulrich] makes a modern reader understand what it would have been like to have been born female in early New England…a truly remarkable achievement." — Mary Beth Norton, Cornell University

A gravestone in northern New England proclaims that a woman was "Eminent for Holiness…Prudence, Sincerity…Meakness…Weanedness From ye World…Publick-Spiritedness …Faithfulness & Charity."

"A major addition to our historical understanding of women in colonial New England…a path-breaking depiction of wives and mothers." — Kathryn Kish Sklar, S.U.N.Y., Binghamton
