Mary Dyer: For Such a Time as This
Christy K Robinson
In the second of two volumes, Mary Dyer: For Such a Time as This, the Mary and William Dyer return to war-torn England and lay a foundation for liberty that resonates in the 21st century. Why did beautiful, wealthy Mary Dyer deliberately give up her six children, husband, and privileged lifestyle to suffer prison and death on the gallows?
Christy K Robinson's two novels on the Dyers are compelling, provocative, and brilliantly written, blending a wealth of historical fact--and creating conversations, correspondence, and motives (fiction)--to produce a thoroughly beautiful work you won't want to put down. The author has reconstructed a forgotten world by researching the culture, religions, and politics of England and America, personal relationships, enemies, and even the events of nature, to discover who these people, the founders of America, were. If you thought you knew Mary Dyer by previous books, Wiki articles, or genealogy pages--think again. New research and brilliant deductions have dispelled myths and mistakes that have been accepted as truth since Mary Dyer's time!
Make this pair of Dyer novels the subject of your book club discussions, or add them to a reading list for high school and college classes in early-modern English and American history, women's studies, and religious liberty and religious history.
