purchase at bookshop.org In this podcast I talk with author Sally Cabot Gunning about law in the Satucket Trilogy: The Widow's War, Bound, and The Rebellion of Jane Clarke (Harper 2006, 2008, 2010). Gunning is an accomplished writer of mystery novels and historical fiction set in eighteenth-century America. By bringing to life important pieces of America's legal past, her stories encourage a wide audience to wrestle with a diverse array of legal theories. Some of the topics discussed include:
  • Colonial jurisprudence
  • The legal status of women in puritan New England
  • Indentured servitude
  • Infanticide trials
