This is a quick read about a difficult subject. Rachel is a single woman of advancing age, with no family support, trying to provide for herself in 1600's England who finds herself pregnant by a charismatic, idealistic married man who is currently jailed for his politics. In 2012 America I sometimes think we "accept" too much. At work I see babies born into heartbreaking situations and regulations bending over backwards to support their birth mothers. After reading this book I feel that if we must err, then yes, we should err on the side of acceptance and assistance. How quick the Puritans were to judge and render punishment. It never fails to amaze me how women (even today)are so willing to assist men in the oppression of women.
