BECAUSE AS A PEOPLE WE HAVE LOST OUR WAY, AND OUR VALUES I AM DOING A POST ON REKINDLED

Rekindle means revive something which has been lost. 

The author states in private conversations that she intended the book to act as a vehicle to see now in terms of 17th century England and New England. " I want to be engaging so this world’s irritation fades and the 17th century comes to life making people think about first things..."

The author is a chemist and mathematician by trade.

The book is historical fiction, so while some of the characters are the compilation of many real people, the factual events are mostly real.

We still teach in our schools they came for religious freedom. There is zero truth to this. Rhode Island where my family started was the first colony to separate church from state. The book mentions the battle for religious freedom under King James fought by my grandfather 13 generations removed, Edward.

Once the story reaches the new world you see the reality of religious oppression by the original settlers. There is a section where my grandfather 11 generations removed, George, was kidnapped from Rhode Island and taken to Connecticut to be sent back to England to be tried for heresy, such as his grandfather was. The Narragansett people raided the jail in Connecticut, and returned George to Rhode Island.

THE POINT

We as a people really have no historical knowledge of how this country was built, how people had to fight for religious freedom, and the great compromises which had to be written into the constitution to make the Republic real.

In her book Teresa hopes to get people to think how we are where we are today, because we have forgotten about yesterday.

The book is a good read. If we do not go back to fighting for our freedoms, sooner than later we are going to be a 100% corporatist state. We need to look to our beginnings to understand where we are headed today and how to fix things.

Harry Potter started as self published and became an international best seller. The author travels the country for book signing events. She is on the road all of the time. She sells at these evens. Such as Harry Porter, it just needs to catch on. There are people who want to know the truth.
