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

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 housewifes 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.
