“Unlike Any Other”

October 7 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Author Ed Londergan will talk about his novel, based on the life of Bathsheba Spooner.

** NOTE THE TIME CHANGE: THE PRESENTATION WILL BE AT 2:30, NOT 12:00 **

Bathsheba Spooner was the daughter of Timothy Ruggles, a general in the French and Indian War, president of the Stamp Act Congress, Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas, and a leading loyalist in Massachusetts during the Revolutionary War; the epitome of upper class.

Like her father, Bathsheba was smart, strong-willed, and a staunch British loyalist. Forced to marry a man she did not love, Bathsheba withstood her husband’s abuse for years until a young Continental soldier entered her life. But when this well-heeled mother of three small children discovered she was pregnant with the soldier’s child, her thoughts quickly turned to murder.
