Review quote

`...We have here an impressive history of the effect of poverty and wealth on migrants to America who happened to be Quakers and a study featuring one of the practices, domesticity. A wonderfully provocative history, it raises as many questions as it answers. Although it reaches beyond its grasp, the fact that it attempts to grasp makes it necessary reading for any historian of Quakerism, the family, and women in Anglo-American culture`. William and Mary Quarterly.show more
