  • $22.99

In 1815, Mary Marshall Dyer renounced her Shaker beliefs and departed from the religious community in Enfield, New Hampshire, that she had called her home, leaving behind her husband and five children. Angry and alone, Dyer embarked on a fifty year public campaign against the Shakers in an effort to obtain custody of her children and to discredit the sect.
