Good Wives: Image and Reality in the Lives of Women in Northern New England, 1650-1750

Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

Publisher: Vintage Books

Format: Paperback

This enthralling work of scholarship strips away those abstractions to reveal the hidden — and not always stoic — face of the "goodwives" of colonial America. In these pages we encounter the awesome burdens — and the considerable power — of a New England housewife's domestic life and witness her occasional forays into the world of men. We see her borrowing from her neighbors, loving her husband, raising — and, all too often, mourning — her children, and even attaining fame as a heroine of frontier conflicts or notoriety as a murderess. Painstakingly researched, lively with scandal and homely detail, Good Wives is history at its best.
