Hodges, Jae

In 1663 Lidia Wardell walked naked through the Newbury meetinghouse in protest of Puritan treatment of Quaker women. For this crime she was publicly whipped. As Lidia endures 20-30 stripes to her back, she recalls the events that led her to the whipping post—“a detailed, fascinating read”; “riveting historical fiction…a remarkable story of one woman’s courage, strength, and determination…that will make you think, and even question, just how much our society has really learned”; “a truly compelling read out of limited historical records”; “you almost feel every single lash right along with Lidia”.
