“The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.”
This is the second book of Kathleen Kent's that I've read, and I'm definitely a fan. This I guess is a prequel to The Heretic's Daughter: A Novel - Kathleen Kent and is loosely based off her family history and local Massachusetts historical lore. I found it to be a gripping, believable account, and an engrossing story.
A good related read for this would be Accidents of Providence - Stacia Brown which is set during the same time period, and also includes Leveler politics.
