Mercy Goodhue: A Puritan Woman's Story of Betrayal, by Elizabeth Kern

By Elizabeth Kern

MERCY GOODHUE
A PURITAN WOMAN'S tale OF BETRAYAL, WITCHCRAFT AND MADNESS

Imagine a time whilst nights have been darker than darkish, whilst God was once a harsh pass judgement on, while witches have been believed to be actual, while medication was once combined with superstition and magic, while girls have been anticipated to “be fruitful and multiply” from marriage until eventually menopause.

Imagine a time whilst a wide photo of an eye fixed was once tacked to front of the pulpit within the Puritan meetinghouse, reminding males, ladies, and youngsters that God used to be consistently staring at.

Welcome to Massachusetts within the seventeenth Century.

MERCY GOODHUE is the tale of a Puritan lady who's pushed to the threshold of insanity by means of the tough non secular ideals of her time. it's also the tale of a tenacious midwife and herbalist, Goody Hammer, who by no means provides up on Mercy, and saves her from committing an unthinkable crime.

The tale starts in 1630 while Mercy, a joyous younger woman getting into womanhood, sails along with her relations upon the Winthrop Fleet to Massachusetts. Mercy reveals love with the good-looking Joshua, yet then a painful betrayal forces her to maintain a mystery that threatens to break her earthly existence and her desire for salvation.

MERCY GOODHUE brings jointly a colourful array of historic characters (the pioneer, John Winthrop, the “heretic” Anne Hutchinson, the zealot, John Cotton) and fictional ones just like the mysterious Goody Hammer who “meddles in phisicks and oyles.” the tale is loosely established upon an excerpt taken from the diary of John Winthrop, the 1st governor of the Massachusetts Bay corporation, who in 1637 wrote approximately this sort of lady, Anne Needham Hett.
