I am delighted to announce the release of my first non-fiction audiobook…and it’s a doozy!
Have you ever heard of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson? Because if you were a resident of North America in the early 80’s–the 1680’s that is–you better believe you would have known who she was. Mrs. Mary Rowlandson and three of her children were kidnapped by Native Americans from their home in Lancaster, Massachusetts in the winter of 1675. She went on to live with the Native People for 11 weeks, and her tale is harrowing, gruesome, tragic, inspiring..basically everything that makes an incredibly compelling story. Some years after her release she wrote about her experiences and published them under the title “Narrative of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson.” And if you think that’s a mouthful, you should read the book! Nonetheless, this historical memoir became arguably America’s first bestseller. It’s a bit of a chore to read, but dare I say, pretty great to listen to!
It’s available now on Audible and if you want to listen to an amazing story of survival, I’d encourage you to check it out! Thanks to Listen2aBook for helping me share Mrs. Rowlandson’s story with the world.
