Reviews

  • Campion has illumined Ann Lee as a formative figure in the women's movement as well [as] evoked a strong, estimable character whose personality overcame the eccentricities of her religion in the eyes of many who encountered her.

    New York Times
  • Written "with a feminist perspective emphasizing the radical nature of the Shakers and their leader, who proclaimed women equal to men and believed that God had a dual male/female nature.

    School Library Journal
  • An impeccably documented biography of the extraordinary religious leader who was called the 'female Christ'.

    Horn Book
  • An impeccably documented biography of the extraordinary religious leader who was called the 'female Christ'.
