: Well, Ms. E., here's a serious post from me that does not
: include the words "naked" or "loincloth"...can you stand
: the shock? Anyway, I checked out your Mohican book
: archive, and it's outstanding. Here's a few more titles you
: might want to check into. All are set in colonial American,
: all are written from the female POV. For nonfiction, Laurel
: Ulrich's "The Midwife's Tale" based on the diaries of
: a New England midwife is excellent. Two fiction titles by
: Margaret Lawrence are "Hearts and Bones," and the
: sequel "Blood Red Roses." They are the best books
: I've read in years. A long-time favorite author of mine
: is Janice Holt Giles -- her first book, "Hannah Fowler",
: is set in 1750's Cain-tuck-ee. She wrote a whole series
: based on the Fowler family -- start with Hannah and I
: guarantee you'll want to read them all.
I must confess that I reread your post several times, searching for the buzz word or punch line...... none were to be found! Sooooo.....
after catching my breath and regaining my composure, I can now reply as if there is nothing amiss. (Don't do that to me! It's scary.)
Thanks VERY much for those additional titles. "The Midwife's Tale" is one I have heard is excellent. It's oft quoted as a research source. The others I will check out and see if we can't squeeze them in as well. (Amazon.com must carry them for us to add them.) The colonial woman POV has been, I dare say, neglected??? I do trust your good judgment, though I don't know if it's any better than your aim.
Thanks very much, Mary!
