The Times and Trials of Anne Hutchinson: Puritans Divided by Michael P. Winship
This slim, well-written book was excellent at elucidating the times and the controversy which was much bigger than just Anne Hutchinson, who I thought was honestly profiled by the author.
New England Bound: Slavery and Colonization in Early America by Wendy Warren.
I've read a few books and one PhD thesis related to slaves, indentured servants, the triangle trade...etc. This is a very readable, eye-opening study of slavery in New England, focusing primarily on Africans, though she does touch on Native Americans also.
As far as fiction goes, I've got the new Jeffrey Lent in the TBR pile.
Jeeze, the other one was a charming story about an elusive dog, a recently divorced man who moves back to his native small town, becomes a policeman, grows into the quieter life, finds love and the dog falls in love with him. I don't remember the name; the author lives and writes - always with a dog character - on or near Martha's Vineyard.
