Ratings and Comments


Reflects the spirit of not only Ms Bradstreet but the Plymouth colonists.

A lot to be said for the sentiment. I don't have to stick my finger in a light socket to enjoy a censorial existence that is not quite so shocking; while, opposition is usually a great teacher.

Adversity is the spice of experience, and with this experience greater joy to prosperity.
