Three disclaimers: 1. I totally geek the American Revolution, 2. I (and whole family) have been Rev War re-enacting for much longer than the war lasted, 3. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review. Plus, I am female and have worked with the criminal justice system.
That being said, I feel that this is a wonderful academic thesis made real and comprehensible. It appears to be as well-researched as possible, and is presented in a logical, coherent manner. Many details are presented regarding the charges and lifestyles involved, as well as the privations thrust upon the women who were enslaved by the sentences they were given. Any comparison to today's criminal justice system is laughable. It is well worth the read for many of us.
Sally Martin gives an excellent performance as personable lecturer. Her rate of delivery easily allows for note-taking as well as intellectual absorption.
