A finalist for the Lincoln Prize, The Sea Captain's Wife "comes surprisingly, and movingly, alive" (Tina Jordan, Entertainment Weekly). Award-winning historian Martha Hodes brings us into the extraordinary world of Eunice Connolly. Born white and poor in New England, Eunice moved from countryside to factory city, worked in the mills, then followed her husband to the Deep South. When the Civil War came, Eunice's brothers joined the Union army while her husband fought and died for the Confederacy. Back in New England, a widow and the mother of two, Eunice barely got by as a washerwoman, struggling with crushing depression. Four years later, she fell in love with a black sea captain, married him, and moved to his home in the West Indies. Following every lead in a collection of 500 family letters, Hodes traced Eunice's footsteps and met descendants along the way. This story of misfortune and defiance takes up grand themes of American history—opportunity and racism, war and freedom—and illuminates the lives of ordinary people in the past. A Library Journal Best Book of the Year and a selection of the Book of the Month Club, Literary Guild, and Quality Paperback Book Club.

What a beautiful day for Kevin and Mary to look for their dream home. As they were walking happily through a New England subdivision, Kevin stumbled upon a two story mansion that took his breath away. Kevin tried to open the door, but it was locked. Mary repeatedly told him that since the door was locked maybe they should leave. "This place has to be about two-hundred years old," Kevin said. He wasn't about to leave. Something was drawing him to this place. Kevin tried each window and finally found one that was open and told Mary to follow him inside. Mary refused since she thought they were trespassing. Kevin shrugged it off and climbed through the window. Just as he climbed in, dark clouds rolled in and rain came pouring down upon the house. "Mary, get inside before you get soaking wet,” Kevin urged. When Mary heard the thunder and the lightning, she didn't hesitate to enter the house. She grabbed hold of Kevin's arm, clinging for dear life, as he pulled her fragile body through the window. The place was dark and gloomy with an eerie presence about it. "Mary, stay right here. I'll find us some light and a blanket to keep you warm so we can get a better look at the place." Kevin was able to find an old lantern to light their way through the rest of the house. As Kevin and Mary looked the room over Mary approached a painting on the wall. Mary said "Kevin come over here and look at this." As Kevin approached the painting with the lantern shining bright all of a sudden his eyes were fixated on the old Sea Captain’s eyes in the painting. Then as he gazed deeper and deeper into the old Sea Captain’s eyes, Kevin became in a trance like state and started acting differently. He was not the same Kevin that he was just minutes before he stared into the old Sea Captain’s eyes in the painting. Mary said "Look, There is a name at the bottom of the painting that says Captain Bobby Jones with a date from 1845-1901. "Mary let's go explore the rest of the house said Kevin."

During the nineteenth century it became increasingly common for merchant service masters to take their wives to sea, particularly in the whaling industry, where voyages of 2-3 years were not uncommon. Reflecting the sailors traditional dislike of women on board seen as unlucky by the superstitious and disruptive by the more rational these ships were derisively dubbed Hen Frigates and although they have been the fashionable subject of academic interest in recent years, there is not much literature by the women themselves. Among the first, and most accomplished, is Abby Jane Morrells account of a voyage between 1829 and 1831 that took her from New England to the South Pacific. Her husband Benjamin was in the sealing trade but was a keen explorer, and his adventurous spirit led him and his wife into situations normally well outside the world of the Hen Frigate. Curiously, Benjamin also wrote an account of this voyage, but since he was described by a contemporary as the greatest liar in the Pacific, his wifes is a better record of what actually happened, even when dealing with dramatic incidents like the murderous attack by cannibal islanders. Apart from the descriptions of exotic places, much of the interest in this book is the traditional, centuries-old world of the sailor as seen through the eyes of a thoughtful and well-educated woman. As such it heads a long line of improving books aimed at ameliorating the seamans lot.

The essays in this volume explore the loopholes and retreats employed and exploited by African American polemicists, poets, novelists, slave narrators, playwrights, short story writers, essayists, editors, educators, historians, clubwomen, and autobiographers during the nineteenth century. These exciting contributions use historicist, comparative, transnational, literary historical, cultural studies, and Foucauldian perspectives to examine how apparent weakness was turned into strength, defensiveness into offensiveness, and the machinery of oppression into the keys to liberation.

In 1852 Hannah Rebecca Crowell married sea captain William Burgess and set sail. Within three years, Rebecca Burgess had crossed the equator eleven times and learned to navigate a vessel. In 1856, 22-year-old Rebecca saved the ship Challenger as her husband lay dying from dysentery. The widow returned to her family’s home in Sandwich, Massachusetts, where she refused all marriage proposals and died wealthy in 1917. This is the way Burgess recorded her story in her prodigious journals and registers, which she donated to the local historical society upon her death, but there is no other evidence that this dramatic event occurred exactly this way. In The Captain’s Widow of Sandwich, Megan Taylor Shockley examines how Burgess constructed her own legend and how the town of Sandwich embraced that history as its own. Through careful analysis of myriad primary sources, Shockley also addresses how Burgess dealt with the conflicting gender roles of her life, reconciling her traditionally masculine adventures at sea and her independent lifestyle with the accepted ideals of the period’s “Victorian woman.”
