More Description

When Abigail, a Harvard graduate student, drives from Concord intending to carry out research in Natick she finds herself, not sixteen miles from home but three hundred and sixty-six years in the past. Stunned both in body and mind by her strange circumstances, she makes her way to Colonial Concord where the widowed Hannah invites her to stay. Assuming that she is in the seventeenth century only temporarily, Abigail eagerly observes the daily life around her, as if she were on a field trip gathering notes for her history thesis. Soon however, she changes from being the objective observer to accepting the friendship of the ailing Hannah and the love of her nephew, Paul. Aware that her tall, lanky body and outspoken personality are in conflict with the accepted norm for Puritan women, she worries about survival in these dangerous times. Why was she brought back to the very period that she has studied? Does she have a mission in the seventeenth century? Can she and Paul build a fulfilling life together without running afoul of local politics and scheming relatives? Or is it all really a dream? Anne Ipsen draws on her fascination with history to explore the special town that is Concord, using time travel to help the reader envision Puritan society through the eyes of a modern historian. As in her previous books, Ipsen evokes a sense of place in At the Concord of the Rivers, transporting us to the early years of the town whose enduring spirit was to be heard around the world.
