Anne Bradstreet – Book Review

September 12, 2010 at 8:49 pm Leave a comment

Anne Bradstreet, a new biography written by D. B. Kellogg, published by Thomas Nelson Publishers is obviously a non-fiction book about Anne Bradstreet’s life. The book covers Anne’s entire life, which began when she was born in 1612. In order to better understand Anne, details were given about her family and culture around her. A Puritan and poet, she was born in England, and after being married for only two years, Anne and her husband, as well as her parents, immigrated to the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

I received this book from the publisher and chose it because I wanted to learn about Anne’s life. Before reading this book, I could not have told you when she was born or what she was known for. I have mixed feelings about this book. Sometimes it was interesting, and other times I felt like I was reading a textbook. The writing was fine, just boring at times. The information flowed well, starting at the beginning of Anne’s life and continuing to her death in chronological order. If you are looking to learn more about Anne Bradstreet’s life, you may enjoy this book. It’s not very long, being only 152 pages. She seemed to be an impressive woman, who was serious about her faith her entire life.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
