Overview

How An 18th Century Woman from A Prominent New England Family Went from A Life of Privilege to The Gallows . . .

Bathsheba Spooner was the daughter of Timothy Ruggles, a general and second-in-command of British forces during in French and Indian War, president of the Stamp Act Congress, Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas, and a leading loyalist in Massachusetts during the Revolutionary War; the epitome of upper class.

Like her father, Bathsheba was smart, strong-willed, and a British loyalist. Forced to marry a man she did not love (or even like), Bathsheba withstood her husband's abuse for several years, until a young Continental soldier entered her life. But when this well-heeled mother of three young children discovered she was pregnant with the young soldier's child . . . her thoughts quickly turned to murder.

Based on a true story, the events that follow Bathsheba's life, her decisions, and her ultimate demise will show readers that Bathsheba Spooner was, in fact, Unlike Any Other . . .
