The mother of thirteen children, and the wife of John Brown, she is a forgotten, yet integral part of the march towards the abolition of slavery. She watched and helped shape many of the major actors in that battle, from Kansas to Harpers Ferry.Who was Mary Anne Brown?

A wife and a mother? Yes. Also, a farmer, cook, seamstress, nurse, teacher and single parent for much of the time. How did she survive her hardships as she moved from town to town, from state to state? How did she bury her four young children who died in an epidemic? What was she thinking, feeling, when Frederick was killed in Kansas? When Watson and Oliver were killed at Harpers Ferry? When her husband was hanged?

When she was widowed, with little resources?Woven into Marys story are chapters about Prudence Crandall (who enrolled Negro children in her Female Seminary), Lucy Stone (feminist and anti-slavery activist), Araminta Ross (Harriet Tubman), and Mary Todd Lincoln.E.M.

Broner, the author of HER MOTHERS and A WEAVE OF WOMEN, has written, Its a fine book - flowing and clean and clear and raging and passionate. The research is wonderfully blended in, as are the stories of many brave men and women.I think of this as a necessary book for everyone…Hilary Hemingway, Contest Director of the Hemingway First Novel Contest wrote, You have an accurate and understated sense of drama that makes this novel a wonderful read.

Cheers to Mary Brown!
