The Midwife’s Revolt
The Midwife’s Revolt takes the reader on a journey to the founding days of America. It follows midwife Lizzie Boylston from her grieving days of widowhood after Bunker Hill, to her deepening friendship with Abigail Adams and midwifery, and finally to her dangerous work as a spy for the Cause. Much has been written about our founding men. But The Midwife’s Revolt is unique in that it opens a window onto the lives of our founding women as well.
The Place Within: Portraits of the American Landscape by Twenty Contemporary Writers
The Place Within is a time capsule in words by some of our most distinguished writers. These portraits about the places in our country’s diverse landscape range from the hummingbirds of Montana to the neon lights of Time Square, the brush fires of Alaska to the Grand Canyon’s silent grandeur. Finally, NASA astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman lifts us up above America into space, where he looks down upon the country in all its vast and yet poignantly fragile entirety.
